Frequently Asked Questions

What Continuing Education (CE) opportunities are available at Blackstone?

We offer CE credit for our live webinar series: Private Markets Perspectives, our virtual Blackstone Universities and our on-demand education program on this page.

How can I request CE credits?

Please provide your designation details in the registration form when signing up for a course.

What designations do you support and what are the requirements to receive CE credit?

Blackstone is a CE sponsor at the CFP Board and the Investments and Wealth Institute (IWI), which include CIMA, CPWA and RMA designations. For each course, you are required to watch the entire video and score at least a 70% in a 10-question quiz following the video. You can also self-report credits with any designation that allows it such as CFA and Canadian Investment Regulatory Organization (CIRO).

How often are CE credits processed?

Our team submits course participants’ CFP and/or IWI designation details weekly, but please allow time as the CE credits may not appear immediately on your organization’s website. Participants with CIRO or any other US designation can self-report attendance using the certificate available for download at the end of the course.

My designation is not included here. Can I self-report my CE credits?

Yes. Upon completion of a course, we provide a certificate that can be used to self-report CE credits. You can download it in the viewing console or via the link in the registration email after the completion of requirements.

If I encounter technical issues or have a question, what is the best way to get help?

We have included a technical help guide in the menu at the bottom of our viewing console. For any additional questions, you can email us at [email protected]
