Certified Equity Professional Institute
Equity Compensation is an Integral Part of Silicon Valley's Legacy and Future
The Certified Equity Professional Institute provides self-paced study programs to assist you in demonstrating your equity compensation knowledge. We offer two professional designations—Certified Equity Professional and Equity Compensation Associate—and a certificate in Advanced Equity Compensation Accounting. Distinguish yourself by becoming an expert in equity compensation!
Becoming an Equity Compensation Associate demonstrates that you have a fundamental knowledge of equity compensation, while becoming a Certified Equity Professional demonstrates that you have a deep knowledge of all aspects of equity compensation, including equity plan design, analysis, and administration. You must earn an ECA to be eligible for the CEP Exams.
The Advanced Equity Compensation Accounting Certificate is for financial reporting professionals in any organization that offers equity compensation, as well as the accounting professionals who are required to verify proper expensing under ASC 718 and other standards. It is open to any individuals that understand the basics of equity compensation.
