Professional Development

Our regional and national programs give you direct access to our senior executives and strategic partners as well as some of the top minds in the industry.


From our annual Connect Conference and regional meetings designed for financial advisors at all levels of professional development to conferences that give top-achievers the opportunity to network and talk about topics of interest to them, we provide a multitude of resources to develop your ever-expanding business.

OSJ Training

Through our dedicated compliance team and the compliance department at Cetera Financial Group, we are able to draw upon our relationships with the individuals driving the changes—before those changes are enacted—and then efficiently communicate our strategies to our office of supervisory jurisdiction (OSJ) managers so they can proactively support the financial professionals they service.

Our OSJ managers have strong relationships with our associates and interact regularly to stay informed. We also create multiple opportunities for questions to be answered on our monthly OSJ manager conference calls and during our educational sessions, such as our Connect Conference and our OSJ manager and sales support training sessions, where we can be sure they have the tools, resources and education they need to be successful.

Recognizing Our Top Producers

We have two key events that specifically focus on rewarding our top-achieving personal producers and managers:
