Primerica today announced the launch of an on-demand training program developed by Integrated Retirement. The high-quality, easily accessible courses allow a greater number of Primerica registered representatives to master the technical concepts required to serve IRA and business retirement plan clients. Primerica is committed to providing its registered representatives with the professional development tools and resources they need to grow their business and remove knowledge barriers to selling and servicing retirement plans.
“This training program is a critical component of Primerica’s retirement plan initiatives,” said John Bandy, Associate Vice President of Securities Marketing at Primerica. “Clearly, our registered representatives will benefit from mastering key retirement plan concepts, and we applaud Integrated Retirement for their role in this foundational element of our overall strategy.”
"The development of targeted retirement training programs that are easily accessible to registered representatives will be a distinct advantage for Primerica registered representatives," said Pam O’Rourke, Senior Vice President and ERISA Counsel at Integrated Retirement.
Primerica anticipates the training program will be utilized by thousands of its registered representatives to help bolster the already significant retirement plans business at the firm. Representatives will be able to conveniently access the programs from Primerica Online.
"Integrated Retirement’s support and management of an extensive project helped us to accomplish a significant goal within our key initiatives, as we seek to deliver a valuable resource that helps registered representatives grow their business,” Bandy said.
