As an IRA specialist, each can better serve their clients, attract new clients, and help industry professionals understand how self-directed IRAs use alternative investments like real estate to build retirement wealth.

Advanta U is a series of sophisticated yet simple educational courses designed to teach certain professionals about self-directed retirement plans. Graduates receive a self-directed IRA specialist designation and enough knowledge to benefit themselves and their clients by knowing how these plans work to build tax-free or tax-deferred income for retirement.

Advanta IRA Administration offers courses at no cost to CPAs, realtors, attorneys, and other professionals to provide powerful knowledge of self-directed retirement plans. Upon graduation, these individuals are able to facilitate better service to existing clients and also cultivate an entirely new class of clients—who are investors. Additionally, graduates also learn how to control their own investment funds and decisions using self-directed IRAs.

“The Littletons have completed Advanta U courses and both received a certificate of accomplishment that touts them as self-directed IRA specialists,” says Jack Callahan, managing partner of the retirement plan administrator in Georgia. “As an IRA specialist, each can better serve their clients, attract new clients, and help industry professionals understand how self-directed IRAs use alternative investments like real estate to build retirement wealth.”
