B/D Solutions focuses on helping brokerage firms and banks plan and implement meaningful Continuing Education Programs (CEP).  We do not create, publish or distribute proprietary CEP material, so we won’t try to sell you booklets, CD’s, or other materials.

B/D Solutions believes that a CEP can be a useful and effective tool in developing and communicating your corporate strategy. If designed properly, regulatory requirements and expenses can be turned into beneficial communication tools for your firm. Many times, we are able to document and formalize organizational information and training materials currently in use to meet CEP requirements.
