NQDC Site Expands Continuing Education Courses

The publisher of the websites myStockOptions.com and myNQDC.com expanded its continuing education offerings for retirement planning professionals.





The website myNQDC.com, which focuses on topics in nonqualified deferred compensation, added education courses. The programs focus on two areas in NQDC: basics and taxes; and enrollment and distribution. Each program offers educational content and accompanying 30-question exam. To take the exam, professionals must certify that they have read the content. Credits are earned only by achieving a passing score.

The site also is offering six credit hours for Chartered Financial Consultants (ChFCs) in Professional Achievement in Continuing Education (PACE). The designation ChFC is administered by the American College.

PACE standards, which are set by the American College, are met by completing at least 30 hours of continuing education every two years. The courses at myNQDC.com can be used for 20% of the requirement.

Credentialed members of the American Society of Pension Professionals & Actuaries (ASPPA) are eligible to take twelve hours of continuing professional education (CPE). ASPPA members are required to earn 40 CPE credits over a designated two-year period. The 12 credits offered by myNQDC.com can be used for 30% of the total.

For its members, the Certified Financial Planner (CFP) Board of Standards mandates 30 credit hours of continuing education every two years. The 21 CFP continuing education credits at myStockOptions.com and myNQDC.com represent 70% of the two-year continuing education requirement. At myStockOptions.com only, CFPs can earn up to 66% of the continuing education requirement.
