"More than that, they add significant value to memberships at our websites, which have a big following among professionals and plan participants alike."
New Courses And Exams
myNQDC.com is the leading online resource of educational content on nonqualified deferred compensation (NQDC) for both NQDC professionals and NQDC plan participants. The continuing education programs in the website's new Learning Center focus on two areas of nonqualified deferred compensation: Basics & Taxes and Enrollment & Distribution. Each program offers a comprehensive course of educational content and a rigorous 30-question exam. To take the exam, professionals must certify that they have read the content. They can earn credits only by achieving a passing score in the exam.
The courses and exams at myNQDC.com offer a total of 6 Professional Achievement in Continuing Education (PACE) credit hours for Chartered Life Underwriters and for Chartered Financial Consultants. They also offer a total of 12 Continuing Professional Education (CPE) hours for credentialed members of The American Society of Pension Professionals & Actuaries.
Certified Financial Planners Can Earn 70% Of Their Total CE Requirement
The new continuing education offerings outlined above join the courses and exams for CFP and CEP credit already offered by myStockOptions.com, the leading online resource of educational content and tools on stock options, restricted stock, restricted stock units, performance shares, stock appreciation rights, and employee stock purchase plans. At the website, CEPs can earn up to 20 continuing education credits, and CFPs can earn up to 15 continuing education credits. Now, in addition, the new courses and exams at myNQDC.com also offer a further 6 continuing education credits for CFPs.
