America's Health Insurance Plans (AHIP) has stopped offering its Long Term Care Partnership training course.
The move affects both the 8-hour starter course and the 4-hour continuing education course, according to AHIP, Washington.
AHIP says its Center for Insurance Education and Professional Development shut down the partnership training program Nov. 30, 2011, and that students' access to the program website ended Dec. 31, 2011.
AHIP is still keeping partnership program student records on its website, the trade group says.
"Your current certification will remain in effect until it expires based upon your state's regulations," the group says.
Agents and brokers in need of certification should ask state insurance regulators for the names of approved vendors, AHIP says.
AHIP is continuing to offer a 4-part course that leads to the Long Term Care Professional designation, and it also offers a course on use of annuities in LTC planning efforts.
