|Online Executive Certificate in Financial Planning||Web-delivered Certificate in Financial Planning|
|Self-paced. Online. Customized Learning.||Live. Online. Instructor-led.|
The Online Executive Certificate in Financial Planning program is designed for students who have the discipline to self-study but are too busy to commit to a regular schedule to attend a traditional classroom program. Students complete the program at their own pace via highly interactive content, including video introductions for each module, instructor whiteboard examples and lectures, interactive games, exercises, homework and exams.
This program also allows the student to go in as much depth on topics as they want or lightly cover the topics they already know. This variable learning method will result in students being able to successfully complete the program, in as much or as little time that they need, in order to understand the material. This customized learning program is designed to prepare you to meet the education requirements for the CFP® Certification Examination.
The Web Delivered Certificate in Financial Planning (Live Online, Instructor-led) is a fully interactive financial planning program designed to meet the education requirements for the CFP® Certification Examination.
Classes meet online two nights per week, for two hours each night. With this program, you can attend class from home or work, no need to fight traffic, worry about parking or leaving work early. Communicate with the instructor and other students using a headset or just listen through your speakers. The accelerated live online program can be completed in nine months.
