Quest CE Announces Agreement With FINRA to Deliver E-Learning

MILWAUKEE, Jan. 8, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Quest CE, premier provider of insurance continuing education and Firm Element training, is pleased to announce an agreement with FINRA (Financial Industry Regulatory Authority) to deliver its entire E-Learning Course Library directly through Quest CE's Learning Management System, Renaissance. Beginning January 1, 2015, FINRA's e-learning courses are available for purchase only through vendor-approved, third-party training platforms.*

"We're extremely honored to have been selected by FINRA as one of the resellers of its e-learning courses," said Quest CE's VP of Sales Alex Krenke. "By integrating FINRA's robust course catalog with our proprietary technology, we reaffirm our broader commitment to provide best-in-class training to industry."

Quest CE offers FINRA's e-learning library for individual purchases or for companies looking to manage corporate programs for their representatives. Group purchases are mirrored after Quest CE's popular Firm Element (FE) Express solution. Similar to FE Express, the new platform allows firms to create, launch and manage their entire FINRA E-Learning library from the convenience of an easy-to-use, self-service web portal.

The new platform also features a range of advanced system capabilities to help streamline the Firm Element lifecycle. In addition to the overarching benefits of a quick and seamless program launch, it provides program administrators with the ability to bulk load users to the system, as well as schedule automated training reminders, throughout the year, using the platform's internal Email Blast Tool. Additionally, a detailed reporting dashboard is available to help track representatives' training completions as they occur in real-time.

FINRA's e-learning courses can be purchased individually or as a group. Individual courses start at $12.50, whereas group subscriptions can be purchased for $45 per user and include unlimited access to the FINRA catalog.
