For New Professionals

Exceptional starts here.

With all of the possibilities and complexities of a career in financial services, some new professionals struggle to determine the path that makes most sense for them.

A generalist designation from The American College of Financial Services is a great place to start. CLU®, ChFC®, and the CFP® certification cover a wide range of topics that will allow you to serve a broad client base.

If you’d prefer to first have a solid foundation for learning, with fundamental product and skills training, an FSCP® designation may be right for you. It’s a great way to get introduced to professional education and to gain a higher level of confidence that will serve you for the rest of your career.
