The American College is making a special offer to financial services professionals who have earned the Certified Senior Advisor designation.[@@]

The college will be offering CSA holders a chance to earn its Chartered Advisor for Senior Living designation without taking the college’s gerontology course, HS 350 Understanding the Older Client. The change means as many as 12,000 CSA holders could be eligible to earn the CASL designation by taking 4 courses rather than 5, the college says.

The offer will be valid until March 1, 2006, the college says.
