More than 50 compliance officers, attorneys, and analysts spent one week in July in the classroom for the first course of the FINRA Institute at Georgetown Certified Regulatory and Compliance Professional (CRCP)® program. The program, a partnership between the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) and Georgetown McDonough, is the premier executive education program designed specifically for securities industry regulatory, legal, and compliance professionals.
Week I participants received intensive classroom instruction using case studies and interactive exercises on the financial services industry and securities regulation. Some topics included securities law and regulatory structure, federal anti-fraud rules, market regulation, capital markets, communications with the public, suitability and supervision, among others.
“The program stitched together a complex regulatory scheme in which most of us usually see only a part in our daily work,” one participant said.
The program comprises two week-long residential courses taught by Georgetown and visiting faculty, industry experts, and regulators. The second course will be offered in November and the first course will be re-offered in July 2019.
