This past July, CMA launched its virtual Adviser Certification Training Program. This course typically occurs during onsite conventions to provide new and veteran advisers a chance to sharpen their skills and share their acquired wisdom. 

CMA continues to look for ways to bring value to its members. In an effort to do so, we are allowing our membership free access to two of the electives that were available during the course of the training.

Interested in participating in the next course? Our second round of Adviser Certification Training will take place from Jan 4. - Jan. 15, 2021. 

Please note: These courses are accessible to CMA members only. You will need to be logged in to view the videos.
