  • 15 continuing education credits for CPWAs and CIMAs (37.5% of the total requirement)

"Our CE courses not only demonstrate the practical expertise and excellence of our content," explains Bruce Brumberg, the editor-in-chief at myStockOptions.com.

These are engaging online self-study programs that busy professionals can take at their convenience to obtain necessary CE credits."

"The value of our CE courses as efficient educational tools has also led some major financial institutions to use our Learning Center for internal training and their in-house certification programs," adds Mr. Brumberg.
