Pension Educator Series
The centerpiece of Relius Education's self-paced online learning is the Pension Educator
Series, a two-part series on qualified retirement plans. These two series
comprise 21 individual courses that explain everything from what a "qualified" plan
is (and why an employer would sponsor one) to how to understand and perform compliance
tests. Both series include pre-test assessment tools, detailed text, glossary, real-world
examples, and scored quizzes.
PENSION ELEMENTS is an introductory, 7 course series which presents general
concepts to new plan recordkeepers, service personnel, or sales representatives.
Most students will complete this module in 6 to 8 hours.

a comprehensive case study and places a special emphasis on current law (EGTRRA
and PPA). Most students will complete this module in 14 to 16 hours.
