Professional Responsibility 2017


  • CFP® certificants: This course qualifies for a total of 2.0 FPSC-approved CE credits, 1 in the Professional Responsibility category and 1 in the Financial Planning category.

FORMAT: Downloadable course notes in PDF format and an online quiz.

COURSE DESCRIPTION: This course is specifically designed to meet the FPSC's requirement for a Professional Responsibility CE credit. Note that while we are currently developing a 2018 version of this course, Professional Responsibility 2017 (or our previous ethics courses discussed below) can be used to meet your requirement for a 2018 professional responsibility CE credit.

Building on the success of our previous professional responsibility courses (i.e., Many Shades of Grey and MORE Shades of Grey), Professional Responsibility 2017 includes five new case studies. Each case study presents a dilemma that you might encounter as a financial advisor, and gives you the opportunity to consider how they could be handled.

NOTE: You have one year from time of purchase to complete this course.

NOTE: Many Shades of Grey and MORE Shades of Grey are still available, but you do not have to complete them before taking Professional Responsibility 2017; the courses are completely independent of each other. However, you can choose to do more than one of these courses in one year, in which case you would count 1 CE credit in the Professional Responsibility category, and the remaining CE credits in the Financial Planning category. You can carry up to 25 CE credits in the Financial Planning category forward to the following year.
