You’ve probably heard of Classroom CE, Online CE and even Webinar CE, but a delivery type that’s been gaining momentum with financial advisers over the past several years is Super CE – and for good reason. Super CE is a continuing education program that provides advisers with the opportunity to earn multiple CE credits for both state insurance and professional designations. It typically involves a 30-60 minute in-person or live webinar presentation paired with a self-study course, and can provide up to 24 hours of credit.
As you can assume, being able to chip away at such a large portion of their CE requirements is extremely appealing to advisers. And wholesalers still benefit from having that face-time with the advisers they work with. A win-win, so to speak.
Alright, so at this point, you may be considering Super CE as a delivery method for your firm, but now what? The next question you’ll want to address is what training you want to offer, and whether you want to develop it entirely in-house, choose something more off-the-shelf or an option in-between. Below we outline each direction so you can make the best choice for your company.
1.) Author & File Your Own Content
One direction we see firms take is authoring their own content entirely in-house. That way, they can make the content extremely unique and tailored specifically around the topics that best represent their business and the products they sell. By doing so, you’re not just meeting a requirement; you’re establishing a distinctive identity in your industry. This route may take a little longer, as the course may still need to be written and filed for approval, but you benefit from offering something curated for and by your business.
2.) Personalize and Re-File Off-the-Shelf Content
Another popular option we see clients take is to edit our existing Super CE content and re-filing it as your own. This provides your course authors with a solid starting place for your material, which you can then personalize to align with your firm’s tone, philosophy, and brand identity. This means you can retain the core concepts while infusing your unique spin, ensuring that your audience engages with content that feels both familiar and fresh.
3.) Leverage the Quest CE Catalog
While authoring and editing content is valuable, we recognize that time is often of the essence. This is where Quest CE’s catalog of pre-existing content becomes indispensable. By selecting courses from Quest CE’s already pre-approved catalog, you’re tapping into a repository of expertly crafted material that’s been meticulously curated. From there, you can skip the filing step and immediately have your program up and running. Quick, easy, and best of all, efficient.
