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 and compliance meetings, e-learning, online workshops, webinars and webcasts.
CRCP CE Self-Certifying Process
CRCP graduates should report CRCP CE credit(s) as soon as possible after concluding a program or course. CRCP CE credits are not considered accrued until you have reported them to FINRA.

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.
