Academic Programs


Our Program is Offered in Self-Study and Live Seminar Format.



At this time we are offering a program on Premium Financing.   This is not your old stand-by program for the wealthy, but a program for the middle class who need ways to stretch their planning to cover their many needs now and in the future. This is also a tool that can impact your retirement programs.

This class qualifies for 4 hours of CE in our home state (Oklahoma).   Check with us about CE in your state.

The Retirement Academy is offering an on-demand teleconference training program. The review material and Code of Ethics will be provided in either e-mail format or CD format.
