Intensive Live Review - IRP

 
Accelerate your ChFC®, CFP® Certification and CLU® with Live 2 ½ day live classroom environment. Highly qualified American College faculty members provide you with 16 hours of intensive review of all the major course concepts. You will also have the ability to ask questions and interact with fellow students. On the last day of the session you will take a pencil and paper final exam, so there's no need to make a separate appointment at a testing center. These classes are a great way to move through your coursework quickly and conveniently.

If travel is required for you to attend the IRP, The American College is not responsible for flight or accommodation charges. Please do not book any non-refundable travel arrangements until you receive confirmation of the class being held 21-Days prior to the Start Date

For additional information on the following classes, please call 610-526-1481 or email IRP@theamericancollege.edu.

Available Courses and Programs

Which designations at The American College are available through IRP?

Courses covering CFP® certification, ChFC®, and CLU® are offered in the IRP format and combine the best of self-study and classroom review with an onsite exam. All courses are not always offered, so check the schedule to plan out your curriculum.


I have already completed several courses in my ChFC®, CLU® and CFP® certification programs. Can I finish the rest of my courses through IRP’s?

Yes, provided you check your 5-Year window and that we offer the classes you need during that time frame. Check what courses you need to complete your designation, and then check the IRP schedule to plan your schedule.


Am I expected to study before going to the IRP?

Yes. You are expected to have studied the course text before coming to the class because as the name suggests, it is a Live Intensive Review. The session covers the key concepts that will be addressed on the exam, and allows time for student interaction and detailed explanations of the most challenging concepts.


What Are the Times of the Classes?

The classes start at 8 AM on Friday and Saturday and end at 5 PM with breaks included. On Sunday the final exam review is from 8 AM – 10 AM and the exam is from 10 AM – 12 PM.


Payments and Fees

What is the cost for an IRP?

The cost of tuition is $1050. Please also keep in mind that if travel is required, The American College has no responsibility for flight or accommodation charges.


Can I obtain tax documentation for my tuition paid each year?

Yes. The American College will send you a 1098-T form each January for payments made during the previous calendar year.


Security, Scheduling, and Other Student Policies

Is my credit card and Social Security number information safe?

Yes. All credit card and social security number information and activity is processed through secure, encrypted transactions.


How long do I have to complete my course?

You are expected to take your exam while you attend the IRP, while the material is fresh in your mind. However, if you cannot take the exam on location, you can still take the exam at a Pearson Vue testing center during your exam quarter.


If I am unsuccessful on my exam, can I retake the exam?

Yes. For IRP students, you receive a complementary retake at a Pearson Vue testing center, usually within the same quarter as your original IRP. If you are unsuccessful a second time, you will have to pay the retake fee of $170.00.


Is there a cutoff date for registration?

Yes. The cutoff for registration is three weeks before the start date of the review. This is because if you register any later, you run the risk of not having enough time to prepare before actually going to the IRP.

However, if you are already enrolled in the course as a self-study student, since you already have the materials and have already begun studying, you can register for an IRP up to the day before the start date of the IRP.


Can an IRP be cancelled?

Yes. If there are not enough registrations to cover the costs of the course, The American College will notify students of the class cancellation and offer them alternative methods of completing their studies.


Additional Considerations for IRP’s

The most challenging courses are the best candidates for IRP’s. While students benefit from instructor interaction with any course, technical topics such as investments, estate planning, and taxation are particularly effective in the live-review format.


The Benefits of the Intensive Review Program:

  • Outstanding price for value with higher pass rates for challenging courses.
  • Live interaction/Q&A with a qualified instructor.
  • A focused, intensive review without outside distractions.
  • Onsite exam while the material is fresh in students’ minds.
  • Scheduled review keeps students on track for course completion.
  • One free retake of exam.
  • Author of the textbook is often the instructor of the IRP class.
