Exam Validity Extension Program

NASAA’s membership approved a model rule for a program similar to FINRA’s Maintaining Qualifications Program (MQP), called the Exam Validity Extension Program (EVEP) for Broker-Dealer Agents (AG). The program allows eligible individuals to maintain the validity of their Series 63 exam for up to five years for states that adopt the model rules by completing annual CE requirements.

For more information about the model rule, participating jurisdictions and FAQs, visit NASAA’s EVEP page. For more information about the availability date and how eligible individuals can enroll, visit the FinPro (Financial Professional Gateway) page.
