Is Fiduciary Training for You?
PSCA’s ERISA Fiduciary Training Program is appropriate for members of fiduciary committees and other employees who have primary responsibility for the operation of their companies’ ERISA plans.
While most fiduciary training programs focus almost exclusively on investments, PSCA offers a comprehensive approach that addresses all areas that are relevant to plan fiduciaries, including fiduciary duties, plan governance, plan documents, monitoring outside consultants and participant communications.
Study at your own pace. All lessons and tests are available exclusively online.
Successful completion of all four modules of the program will result in the awarding of PSCA’s ERISA Fiduciary Training certificate. Continuing education credits are also available through the program.
Completion of the following four education modules is required to receive the certificate:
- ERISA’s Vision of the Fiduciary Role
- ERISA Decision-Making Framework
- Selecting & Monitoring Service Providers
- Fiduciary Communications with Participants
Each module consists of educational materials followed by an online test. You may view the program as many times as necessary before taking the test. After registering, you have up to a year to complete the program.
