Make informed retirement decisions with CE courses from today’s experts.

Our individual courses and Professional Development Membership Programs are designed to serve your needs as a retirement professional in the new retirement environment which requires that advisors take a holistic approach when managing the retirement assets, income, and risks of the middle mass and mass affluent markets. Subjects and speakers are chosen especially for retirement professionals, financial advisors, accountants, call center professionals, support staff, and public sector defined benefit, hybrid and defined contribution educators. Courses are broken down into the three components of retirement and income planning:

  • PLAN for retirement readiness (green courses below). Retirement readiness is holistic, not just financial readiness.
  • PROTECT plan from retirement risks (yellow courses below). Retirement risks can torpedo even the best-laid plans and should be assessed before designing a retirement income plan.
  • PROVIDE retirement income (purple courses below). Retirement income planning is more complex than accumulation planning. All resources available (timing of Social Security, Medicare, pre- and after-tax savings and strategies, human capital, home equity, etc.) should be integrated into a retirement income plan.

Courses qualify for CFP®, CRC®, ASPPA, CLU®, ChFC®, RICP®, CASL and other CE credit.
