Continuing Education Requirements
Certain Registered Persons of FINRA member firms are subject to continuing education training subsequent to their initial qualification and registration, pursuant to Rule 1120. Training requirements consist of a Regulatory Element and a Firm Element, which includes an Annual Compliance Meeting.
The regulatory requirement is administered by FINRA and subject to established time requirements; whereas, the Firm Element is a firm obligation that must be specifically designed to align with the unique nature of the firm in order to enhance a registered person’s securities knowledge, skill, and professionalism.
Pursuant to FINRA Rule 3110, all FINRA members are required to conduct an annual compliance meeting with their Registered Representatives and Registered Principals. Asgard Regulatory Compliance professionals will assist in the administration of your Annual Compliance meeting at your main office or through remote technology. Annual compliance meetings will be tailored to appropriately address your firm’s products and services.
Asgard can assist you in determining which regulatory topics are most applicable for your Firm Element continuing education requirements. The continuing education training program we develop for your firm will include the needs analysis of personnel, the specific topics that will be covered within the training, how the training will be delivered, and an assessment of the program to determine if the training was adequate
