CPSP Credential

As a member of RMTRA, we invite you to take advantage of a new and exciting educational opportunity!  Nuveen, Western Pension and Benefits Council - Denver, and RMTRA have partnered together to bring our members the opportunity to earn the Certified Plan Sponsor Professional (CPSP) credential.  The CPSP is the only accreditation of its kind available to plan sponsors today through the Plan Sponsor Council of America (PSCA). This robust online curriculum was developed by plan sponsors and leading retirement experts to demonstrate a candidate’s knowledge of how to effectively evaluate, design, implement, and manage an employer-sponsored retirement plan.

Who is eligible?

  • In order to earn the CPSP, candidates must have at least two years of experience in a retirement plan sponsor (or related) role
  • The CPSP curriculum consists of 3 online courses and 9 study modules covering advanced concepts for retirement plan sponsors
  • To earn the credential, a candidate must pass a 70-question online exam within 2.5 hours
  • The CPSP program is approved for SHRM® 13 PDC hours and HRCI® 9.75 hours

  • Complete and return the attached application by March 15, 2021 to take advantage of the CPSP accreditation
  • Receive an invite to join Nuveen, WPBC Denver, and RMTRA for a CPSP program kick-off call
  • Receive your code to access the Plan Sponsor Council of America website for coursework and exams
  • Take the online courses and exam by June 30, 2021
  • Join us for a certificate celebration following completion and passing of the CPSP exam

What’s the Value?

  • The course and 1st year designation (covers two attempts at the exam) is valued at $290.  Your out-of-pocket cost?  $0!  Nuveen has generously agreed to sponsor all of RMTRA’s CPSP credential candidates!
