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 FINRA LMS. Instructions are available on how to use the FINRA Learning Management System (LMS) to self-certify courses taken or to view your progress.
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.
