IAR Continuing Education Program

Advance your fiduciary knowledge and fulfill the Investment Adviser Representative
Continuing Education requirements through the MyRIACompliance® platform.

Designed for Investment Advisers by Industry Experts

On November 24, 2020, North American Securities Administration Association ("NASAA") members elected to adopt an investment adviser representative ("IAR") continuing education requirement ("CE") with the goal of ensuring that advisers receive proper and updated training on the securities business relevant to their duties and obligations. RIA in a Box is an approved continuing education provider, with resources and training materials available on the MyRIACompliance platform.
