The North American Securities Administrators Association (NASAA) Investment Adviser Continuing Education Committee met with Prometric this week to kick off the development of the IAR CE program to support the Model Rule that was adopted in November of 2020. The outcome of those meetings was an approved timeline and plan for the development of the program.

During the first four months of 2021, Prometric and NASAA will be standardizing the criteria under which potential IAR CE content providers, instructors and individual CE courses will be approved. The CE program criteria, requirements and application material is expected to be complete and available by the end of the second quarter of 2021.

The focus of the CE Program will be to promote regulatory compliance while also helping investment adviser representatives better serve their clients by remaining knowledgeable of current regulatory requirements and best practices.
