Oct. 12, 2010 - PRLog -- Los Angeles, CA. – October 1, 2010- TRAU™-The Retirement Advisor University™ at UCLA Anderson School of Management Executive Education held the first on campus session for students enrolled in the Certified 401(k) Professional™ designation program working towards earning their C(k)P™ designation. Daniel S. Romero, CFP®, AIF® from Santa Ana, CA attended and as such will be one of the first 75 financial professionals in the nation to be eligible to earn the distinction of becoming a Certified 401(k) Professional™.  The Retirement Advisor University™ at UCLA Anderson Executive Education conducts the training for the C(k)P™ designation.  Fred Barstein, Executive director of The Retirement Advisor University™ explains the goals of the C(k)P. “A financial advisor will have a tremendous impact, positive or negative, for both the employer and the quality of retirement for each employee participating in the plans they manage.  The goal of the C(k)P is to give employers a simple and straight forward way to be sure they are choosing a qualified financial advisor.” said Fred Barstein, Executive Director of The Retirement Advisor University.

The Retirement Advisor University at UCLA Anderson Executive Education grants the C(k)P, a new designation that distinguishes financial professionals who have demonstrated the knowledge and ability to positively affect the retirement outcome for participants in company retirement plans.  "As retirement challenges grow in the U.S., the need for leadership, strategy, and execution becomes increasingly more important, together with UCLA Anderson’s unparalleled faculty, The Retirement Advisor University can fulfill that need with energy, focus, and an innovative learning solution" said Kelly Bean, Assistant Dean of UCLA Anderson Executive Education.

One of the foundations of The Retirement Advisor University is that learning is more than simply knowing and understanding information.  Learning must include the ability to act on new information in a timely fashion.  Each stage of training moves the learner to higher levels of comprehension where the learner can actually DO something with the information.  As such, the C(k)P is one of the most time intensive designations for financial professionals. To attain the C(k)P takes approximately 12-24 months and includes on-campus sessions at UCLA Anderson Executive Education, online courses,  mentoring, completion of numerous tests, extensive exams and submission of a case study demonstrating the application of knowledge learned. The three levels of training include four areas of study: Technical Competence, Optimizing Plan Outcomes, Management & Business, and Sales & Marketing.    Equally as important, to carry a C(k) P designation, advisors must have 10 Defined Contribution Plans, $30 million in plan assets and 3 years experience.

TRAU - The Retirement Advisor University at UCLA Anderson Executive Education is the first company retirement plan management certification program offered in cooperation with a nationally recognized institution of higher learning.  The Mission of The Retirement Advisor University at UCLA Anderson Executive Education is to empower financial professionals focused on the defined contribution and 401(k) industry, with the qualifications and skill sets necessary to deliver on the promise of a secure retirement for plan sponsors and participants.
