Once you become certified, it’s critical that you maintain your certification. Upon formal notification from RIA, Certificants begin their 3-year certification cycle, which runs on the calendar year. Example: The 3-year certification cycle for a professional who becomes certified in October 2018 would run from July 1, 2019 – June 30, 2022.
By taking a 3-day RIA Pillar Designation Course, you can obtain 19.5 CEC credits.
Certificants must actively pursue ongoing professional development through educational coursework, attendance at industry-related events, association involvement, presentations, mentoring and more.
3-Year Certification Cycle
Certificants are responsible for submitting the CEC documentation and paying their certification renewal dues in accordance with their 3-year certification cycle.
If you hold multiple pillar designations, the newly gain certification will automatically be placed on the same certification cycle as the currently held certification(s). Starting with the June 30, 2019 renewal window, the renewal date of the CR would determine the renewal date for all earned certifications moving forward. For dual certificants with no CR, the default renewal date will become that of the first attained certification. Moving forward, all new dual, triple or quadruple certifications will assume the certification renewal date of the first attained certification.
Required CEs and Fees for RIA Advanced Designations
The number of CEs required and the fee required at renewal is contingent upon the number of RIA Advanced Designations achieved – CMP, WLS, FLS, ERS, CLS, CR.
