The Financial Planning Association, Ameriprise Financial and the Certified Financial Planner Board of Standards on Thursday invited undergraduate students from CFP Board-registered universities to sign up for the 2019 Financial Planning Challenge.
The challenge is a three-stage competition designed to engage students and academic advisors in the financial planning community, raise awareness around career opportunities, and encourage students to learn and connect with financial planning professionals.
Students have until May 24 to register.
For their participation in the challenge, students can receive up to 80 hours of CFP continuing education credit toward their experience requirement leading to certification.
“As the professional home for financial planners, FPA is committed to helping members achieve professional excellence to boost their careers to the next level,” FPA executive director and chief executive Lauren Schadle said in a statement.
