|The 4th edition of the Retirement Plan Professional's Designation & Certification Guide is now available
Pittsburgh, PA, February 18, 2019 -- Sharon Pivirotto, Owner of the 401kbestpractices.com blog has released the Retirement Plan Professional's Designation & Certification Guide, updated for 2019. This guide helps qualified plan sales and service professionals review and compare 24 different retirement-focused designation and certification programs.
According to Sharon Pivirotto, "With so many valuable programs available to choose from, this guide simplifies the process of identifying what's out there and how each program compares on subject matter, costs, length of time to complete and a variety of other key points."
The guide was originally published in 2007 with only 13 retirement focused credentials identified and updated in 2012 to reflect the addition of 11 new programs for a total of 24 programs. There was a 2015 edition that also had 24 programs and with the most recent update, the number of programs has not changed although three programs that are no longer offered have been replaced by three new programs for advisors to consider.
