Welcome to Athene Annuity Training



NAIC Annuity Suitability Training

Athene has a strong commitment to training our producers on annuity products. As part of our commitment, we have adopted annuity training specific to Athene products in compliance with the NAIC Model Suitability Rule. Athene's annuity product training is available for producers in all states regardless of whether a specific state has enacted the NAIC suitability training requirements.

Training is required in all states

Effective June 1, 2013, all producers in all states selling annuities are required to complete Athene's annuity product training course prior to solicitation.

Several states also require producers to complete an approved one-time four-hour annuity training course. This course must be completed in addition to the applicable annuity product training course. Recent regulations have been enacted in states which require producers to also complete the four-hour training course.
