FINRA Institute at Wharton CRCP Continuing Education Requirement

CRCP Continuing Education Requirement

Certified Regulatory and Compliance Professional™ (CRCP™) designees are required to complete 12 hours of continuing education (CE) every three years as of their certificate anniversary award date. You can choose your CRCP CE credits from FINRA-developed conferences, e-learning, online workshops, webinars and webcasts.

CRCP CE Self-Reporting Process

CRCP graduates should report continuing education credit(s) upon conclusion of the program by logging the information through the online form. Provide your full name, email address, full name of the program and date of the program. If you experience technical difficulties with the online form, delete your cookies and temporary internet files.

CRCP designees who do not remain current with the CRCP CE requirement may no longer use the designation of CRCP.

Note to Graduates from 2003 or earlier: CRCP designees who received their designation in 2003 or earlier are waived from the CRCP CE requirement. However, these designees are encouraged to complete voluntary continuing education.
