At RIA Compliance Concepts, we believe that education only begins with qualification. Learning is a lifelong commitment, which is why we have decided to further empower all of our Investment Adviser Representatives (IARs) and financial professionals holding the CFP designation.


In Partnership With Kaplan, A Reputable CE Provider.  We Are Proud To Announce The Launch Of Our Continuing Education Program for IARs.


Why Continuing Education Matters?

In an industry where markets change every day, continuing education is not optional. It is essential, especially given how many novel economic laws are emerging. In fact, the North American Securities Administrators Association (NASAA) announced new continuing education model requirements in 2020.


Currently, the following states have adopted the continuing education requirement for investment adviser representatives ("IARs" ): 

  • Arkansas (1/1/2023 effective date)

  • California (1/1/2024 pending effective date)

  • Colorado (1/1/2024 effective date)

  • Florida (1/1/2024 effective date)

  • Hawaii (1/1/2024 effective date)

  • Kentucky (1/1/2023 effective date)

  • Maryland (1/1/2022 effective date)

  • Michigan (1/1/2023 effective date)

  • Mississippi (1/1/2022 effective date)

  • Nevada (1/1/2024 effective date)

  • North Dakota (1/1/2024 effective date)

  • Oklahoma (1/1/2023 effective date)

  • Oregon (1/1/2023 effective date)

  • South Carolina (1/1/2023 effective date)

  • Tennessee (1/1/24 effective date)

  • Vermont (1/1/2022 effective date)

  • Washington, D.C. (1/1/2023 effective date)

  • Wisconsin (1/1/2023 effective date)

  • U.S. Virgin Islands (1/1/2025 effective date)

Failure to adhere to these requirements in the states that have adopted this requirement can affect your license.

You can understand where they are coming from: It’s their job to ensure that all IARs stay updated and informed on the latest regulatory requirements and best practices. Through continuous IAR education, you will have nothing to worry about. You will always be in the state securities regulator’s good books, and your career will always be on an uphill trajectory!
