Chartered Retirement Plans SpecialistSM - CRPS®

CRPS® Professional Designation Program

The Chartered Retirement Plans SpecialistSM , or CRPS® program, is a designation program for financial professionals. This program provides experienced advisors who are focused on retirement plans with the knowledge to recommend implementation techniques that can be executed into well-structured, company-appropriate retirement plans. Students will be able to effectively administer retirement plans for businesses and their employees.

Begin the program at any time with OnDemand classes. You'll have:
  • Access to pre-recorded, instructor-led class lectures that guide you through key concepts in the curriculum.
  • Freedom to view the lectures based on your schedule. You can start, stop and rewind as you need to.

    The CRPS® designation streamlines the cost and time toward your next credential.
    As you advance your career, the College recognizes the time and investment it takes to earn industry-recognized credentials. Upon completion of the CRPS®, graduates earn direct credit for one elective course in the College’s Master of Science Degree in Personal Financial Planning.

    Plus, completion of professional designations programs can also help you fulfill continuing education (CE) requirements:
    • If you are a CFP® professional, all designation programs (except the WMS® and LUTCF® programs) fulfill 28 hours of CE as part of your CFP® certification renewal.
    • If you currently hold a professional designation from the College, completion of a new professional designation fulfills CE hours as part of the renewal of your current designation.
