The Institute of Canadian Bankers (ICB), a trusted provider of career-advancing learning programs for financial services industry professionals, is pleased to announce an offering of selected learning activities that satisfy the Continuing Education (CE) criteria for the Investment Dealers Association (IDA), Financial Planners Standards Council (FPSC) and Advocis.

“We strongly believe that learning is a continuous process. That’s why we offer a wide range of ongoing education learning activities to students in the financial services industry,” says Marie Muldowney, ICB Executive Director.

Muldowney says that while CE is mandatory in most cases, it also provides advisors with the opportunity to expand their knowledge base to be better poised to address their clients’ needs and questions, for example, when it comes to leveraging trusts in financial and estate planning or dealing with business taxation issues.

As an introductory offer to all advisors, ICB has put together a list of nine CE learning activities that are available at a 20-percent discount until the end of 2005. All activities can be purchased individually or as part of a packaged solution.

“We’re especially proud to offer these Continuing Education learning activities that will benefit advisors—at all levels—by equipping them with the essential tools to both attract and retain clients. Ultimately, advisors will contribute to their growth as professionals, as well as that of their business.”
