WARNING: some carriers require LTC classes to be "approved" by a company called "ClearCert". My classes are not so "approved". Please check with your carrier to see if they make a big deal about this. I have received specific information from Thrivent that they insist on this. If this is the case with your carrier(s), you'll have to work with one of my competitors to get your LTCIP certification. Sorry for any inconvenience-- don't get me started on what I think of this. If you are just taking the class for CE credits, the above doesn't apply.
