Frequently Asked Questions

You have questions – we have answers!

Firm Element is a FINRA continuing education rule that requires firms to annually deliver training to their representative population. There are three aspects of this requirement, which include 1.) a needs analysis/survey, 2.) a written training plan, and 3.) firm-wide training.

The Firm Element requirements apply to all “covered persons.” A covered person is defined as someone who is registered, including registered representatives, principals, assistant representatives, research analysts, investment bankers, and operations professionals.

SRO rules require covered persons to participate in training as prescribed by their firms. Failure to do so could result in disciplinary action by his or her firm or by regulatory authority.

You bet! With our service, firms have the ability to customize any off-the-shelf Quest CE courses directly in our course authoring tool, Course Builder. There is no additional cost to use the tool, it’s automatically included with a Quest CE training program!

There is no single date on which training must begin, but it must be completed annually. Training dates are determined by the firm and are incorporated into the training plan. Firm sizes and product offerings may affect the amount of training the firm will offer.

Each firm must provide continued education that is reasonable and in accordance with the identified training needs, but there is not a required number of hours for the Firm Element.
