June 2022: Regulatory Element CE Can Be Applied to IAR CE Requirements Starting June 30

To maintain their RA registration in states that have adopted the IAR CE model rule, each investment adviser representative (IAR) will need to attain 12 CE credits* each year — six credits of Products and Practice and six credits of Ethics and Professional Responsibility. IARs who complete the securities industry Regulatory Element course may apply it towards the Products and Practice component of the IAR CE requirements. 
There are two options to apply Regulatory Element CE to fulfill IAR CE:

  1. Individuals can pay and report through FinPro. 
  2. FINRA member firms can also opt in to pay and apply the Regulatory Element to the IAR CE Product and Practices requirement through a feature in FINRA Gateway. See the Firm Settings Guide for more information. 

The fee is $18 ($3 per credit hour times six credits). Payments are non-refundable.

Regulatory Element Completed in a Previous Year

Firms and IARs should also be aware how to apply Regulatory Element CE that was completed in a previous year, especially for IARs who are joining a new firm. Read on for more information.

  • Individuals can apply prior Regulatory Element CE completed in a previous year to satisfy the IAR CE requirement for that same year. For example, in February 2023, an individual will be able to apply Regulatory Element completed in 2022 to their 2022 IAR CE requirement. 
  • IARs and firms should assess if the individual’s Regulatory Element CE for previous years has been applied to IAR CE before submitting registration forms during onboarding. An individual may lose the ability to apply the prior year’s Regulatory Element to an outstanding IAR CE requirement — if the new firm has opted in to pay the IAR CE reporting fee. IARs should discuss this with the new firm and, if necessary, pay the application fee in FinPro before the firm files Form U4 requesting their registration.
  • Completed IAR CE courses are applied to the oldest outstanding requirement. This means that if an individual applies their 2023 Regulatory Element CE to their IAR CE requirements, and their 2022 IAR CE Products and Practices requirement has not yet been satisfied, the 2023 Regulatory Element will be applied to satisfy the 2022 IAR CE requirement. 
  • Individuals cannot carry over excess IAR CE credits and apply them to future requirements. Therefore, Regulatory Element completed in a prior year cannot be used for a future year. 

*A “credit” is a unit that has been designated by NASAA to be at least 50 minutes of educational instruction.
