"We are excited for the opportunity to be one of the first providers to offer continuing education for investment adviser representatives."
DALLAS, TX, December 01, 2021 /24-7PressRelease/ -- WebCE®, an industry leader in online professional education for the financial services industry, is now approved to offer continuing education courses for investment adviser representatives (IARs).
On November 30, 2020, the North American Securities Administrators Association (NASAA®) voted to adopt a model rule which implemented continuing education programs for IARs. Unlike other financial service professions, IARs had previously not been subject to a continuing education requirement to maintain their registrations with state regulators.
"We have been watching and waiting for NASAA to adopt this rule since it was first proposed," says Julie S. Mendel, SILA-A, CDEI, Sr. Product Manager of Securities Training Solutions at WebCE. "We are excited for the opportunity to be one of the first providers to offer continuing education for investment adviser representatives."
Under NASAA's new model rule, IARs are required to complete 12 hours of continuing education credit every year. These courses must include six courses covering ethics and professional responsibility and six courses covering IAR products and practices.
WebCE is approved by NASAA as an IAR continuing education content provider. The WebCE course catalog offers a comprehensive selection of courses so IARs can easily meet their CE requirements. WebCE also provides other securities training solutions, including securities exam prep courses, Firm Element training, anti-money laundering (AML) courses, Annual Compliance Meeting Online, and more.
The NASAA Model Rule is being adopted on a state-by-state basis with NASAA enforcement to begin in January 2022. IAR CE courses are available now in the WebCE catalog.
