Chicago, IL – March 17, 2015 – Blue Prairie Group (“BPG”), a Chicago-based institutional retirement and investment consulting firm, is pleased to announce a new partnership with the Plan Sponsor Council of America (“PSCA”) to provide an online ERISA fiduciary training program for their clients.
PSCA developed a new online fiduciary training program that provides a certificate of completion for fiduciaries that complete a series of modules and pass corresponding tests. “While we have provided fiduciary education and training for more than a decade, we felt the PSCA program does a nice job of providing essential fiduciary training for plan sponsors with the added benefit of a certificate of completion for the fiduciary file,” said Ty Parrish, Blue Prairie Group’s Managing Partner. “We also like that the program was developed by ERISA attorneys and has the backing of one of the most well-known and highly regarded retirement industry organizations.”
Matt Gnabasik, Blue Prairie Group’s Managing Partner, adds, “Fiduciary education is a key component in understanding how to properly discharge one’s fiduciary duties. That said, it can be challenging to provide meaningful training in a jam-packed committee meeting. With the online program, fiduciaries can study at their own pace and everyone can be assured of consistent, up-to-date content. We will also use this program to onboard new committee members and make it part of our larger client onboarding process.”
