2022 Exit Planning Institute Program Announcement
by Colleen Kowalski on September 29, 2021
Exit Planning Institute is excited to announce our new programs. After over a year of entirely virtual education, we are thrilled to announce the return of our in-person programming! This year we will host eight virtual CEPA Masterclass credentialing programs, several CEPA Executive Experience in-person programs, the launch of a robust virtual education platform, and one world-class Exit Planning Summit in the spring!
In the first half of 2021, our virtual CEPA Masterclass programs have educated over 516 advisors about exit planning and business strategy. The success of this program has proven that quality virtual courses for business professionals are an effective form of education. Scott Snider, President of Exit Planning Institute, says, “The CEPA Masterclass platform redefined the way EPI viewed online education. I think it really changed the way our industry looked at hosting professional designation programs online.”

EPI Academy is Exit Planning Institute’s new interactive online learning platform. In the coming year, EPI Academy will house all of our virtual education, our updated Member Center, student dashboard, and interactive chatroom networking functionality.
We designed the platform in tracks that allow advisors to easily find the content and education they are looking for to enhance their practice. These include recommended learning and professional development plans. Scott Snider says EPI Academy is “continued professional development in a convenient way. It allows advisors a way to build and advance their own practice by completing courses at their own pace online.”
EPI Academy is currently home to our Marketing for Professional Advisors Masterclass with marketing expert, Kiley Peters. In the next year, we will be adding more exit planning education to EPI Academy. Earning the CEPA credential is the first step in mastering exit planning. Now is the time to build upon that knowledge with our CEPA Mastery learning track in EPI Academy
These courses include:
Marketing for the Professional Advisor Masterclass – Available now
During the course, instructor Kiley Peters gives professional advisors instantly actionable strategies and tactics (and a turnkey marketing playbook) that can be tied to revenue metrics for you to hit the ground running immediately.
