Des Moines, IA: Charlie Gipple, owner of CG Financial Group and long-time industry expert on annuities, life insurance, long-term care, presentation skills, and sales strategies has announced the launch of “The Retirement Academy” on April 5. The Retirement Academy is an online training platform for agents, registered reps and broker dealers that is video-heavy and ranges from remarkably simple product explanations and sales strategies to more technical matters like carrier product hedging and tax strategies.
The 250 training videos and 70 expert-level articles that are a part of the training curriculum are divided among six different “Modules”, from Module 1 (Practice Management) through Module 6 (The Academians’s Blog). Drip email training is also employed for members of the Retirement Academy to enhance the comprehension and retention of the material taught. “By year-end, the content will likely double from where it will be at launch on April 5th. However, it is not about quantity, it is ultimately about quality. You can’t find this material in a brochure,” Gipple said.
“The three product lines of annuities, life, and long-term care hybrid products are exactly what many consumers need today. However, the products have never been more complicated to understand from the standpoint of an agent, rep, or broker dealer. The Retirement Academy is groundbreaking because it demystifies these products in a simple manner, which instills confidence and understanding. Furthermore, financial professionals need to know the language and ideas to use with these products, which the academy also addresses," Gipple said.
