Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) January 07, 2016
Greene Consulting, a leading financial services education and consulting firm, and the University of Georgia's Terry College of Business, one of the top business schools in the country, unveiled the Certified Personal Retirement Specialist™ (CPRS™) designation. This comprehensive professional designation is designed to equip financial professionals looking to compete in the $25 trillion U.S. retirement market.
This professional designation equips seasoned professionals and those new to the industry with the retirement planning knowledge and application skills required to confidently advise clients in both pre-retirement savings strategies and post-retirement income planning. “It represents a commitment to the financial professional’s career as well as a high level of expertise and accomplishment," says Mike Jenkins, Senior Associate Director - Executive Programs, Terry College of Business.
This fast-track, self-paced online designation is available via Greene Consulting’s web-based financial advisor educational platform, which currently serves thousands of financial advisors throughout the financial services industry. Completion of the CPRS™ designation provides professionals with marketable CPRS™ credentials and simultaneously earns dual credits towards the partners' existing CFP Board registered educational program.
“The partnership and expertise represents two organizations with an exceptional history and excellence in education," says Senior Consultant Michael Sorrow of Greene Consulting. "Existing retirement designations only address facts regarding retirement topics. The CPRS™ professional designation extends beyond the technical topics of retirement planning and provides professionals additional content on the actionable strategies, examples and best practices for how the most successful financial advisors are effectively engaging clients and prospects on the complexities of retirement planning. The CPRS™ is the only professional designation that truly provides financial advisors with a competitive edge and a strong sense of confidence in delivering retirement solutions by addressing the technical knowledge as well as the conversational skills necessary for success."
