This may be the wrong forum for this question....but recently I received a email the other day from the American College of Financial services. Normally I ignore these things, but for some reason I opened this one. It dealt with earning my RICP certificate. I am currently only a lowly health/life insurance agent working in a call center. However I've a background in banking and am thinking about leaving my company for greener pastures someday. My current employer will not pay for this course (and I don't blame them since this is outside the scope of what I currently due). So in a nutshell: 1) Is it worth having on my resume for a later date? I want to get back into banking sometime in the future. 2) The cost is $2500 for the course. Is it worth the money to pursue? 3) Does this make sense? Or am I not thinking clearly and missing something fundamental? Your feedback is welcome.
