Coronavirus Impact on FINRA-Administered Exams & Continuing Education

Exams

FINRA and Prometric take the health and well-being of our community as a top priority. In response to the recent guidance from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) related to the growing concerns about the Coronavirus (COVID-19), Prometric is closing its testing centers in the United States and Canada for a period of 30 days, starting March 18, 2020. Candidates who have an existing appointment will receive an email from Prometric with instructions on how to reschedule their appointment to a future date; rescheduling fees will not be applied. To change an existing appointment scheduled over 30 days (April 16 or later) or to schedule a new appointment, please access the Prometric website

Additionally, FINRA will extend all enrollment windows that are currently open and scheduled to expire by the end of May. Each FINRA-administered exam enrollment end date will be extended through the same end date of May 31, 2020.

Continuing Education (CE)

FINRA is aware of the challenges that COVID-19 is presenting for our registrants who want to satisfy their Continuing Education (CE) Regulatory Element requirements. FINRA will extend all Regulatory Element requirements that are currently expired, or will expire, between March 16, 2020 and May 2020.  Each Regulatory Element end date will be extended through the same end date of May 31, 2020.
