NPC University

We understand just how valuable your staff members are, and how much they contribute to your success. To provide your new and seasoned Administrative Professionals with the tools to perform at the highest level, we offer specialized beginning and advanced courses through our unique NPC University (NPCU) program.

NPCU is designed to train and educate your Administrative Professionals on the basics of processing NPC-related business and departmental policies and procedures, as well as provide specialized instruction on the many technology resources that are available to you and your office.

Introductory training courses are conducted 100% online, making it much easier for you and your team to arrange participation around your busy schedule. We also host an advanced 2-day hands-on training at the NPC Home Office in Los Angeles, designed to help your top Administrative Professionals take their knowledge to the next level.



Specialized Retirement Planning

NPC’s In-House Specialists Are Second to None

Every eight seconds, another Baby Boomer turns 50, further highlighting the opportunity for Financial Advisors to take advantage of the trillions of dollars heading toward retirement with this generation. At NPC, we understand both the scope and challenges inherent in providing retirement planning services for your clients, and offer top-level, personalized support through our group of in-house specialists.

Our experienced subject matter experts are ready and available to answer your questions regarding 408(b)(2) disclosures, IRA contribution requirements, changes in rollover regulations, and more. Each specialist provides focused expertise in a specific area, including overall retirement planning, insurance, mutual funds and alternatives and fixed insurance, allowing our Advisors to implement, compliant, up-to-date and comprehensive retirement solutions for their clients. We also offer third-party fixed insurance solutions through Ash Brokerage.
