Long-Term Care: 8-Hour Training for California Agents


What is long-term care? Essentially, it refers to the wide range of services and care that individuals need when they are unable to care for themselves as a result of a chronic (long-term) medical condition. The need for long-term care can arise at any age from the effects of an illness or injury, and it can also arise simply as a result of the normal effects of aging.

The purpose of this course is to provide a thorough understanding of long-term care and long-term care insurance in California. Before an agent can sell LTC insurance in this state, he or she must complete a course of study on this subject according to a topical outline provided by the state. This course is approved to provide the 8 hours of training and instruction required of all agents who sell long-term care insurance in California.
