National Institute of Certified College Planners

Business Builder Program


While many CCPS® (Certified College Planning Specialist™) only need our basic membership tools & resources to adequately support their client base, the Business Builder Program is for those advisors who want financial strategy suggestions and access to personal support in the NICCP Forum area (Discussions With Experts) from our founder, Rick Darvis, CPA, CCPS®.

The Business Builder Program includes:

Client Strategy & Case Study Analysis

There is a special area on our discussion forum called DISCUSSIONS WITH EXPERTS. Here Rick and Ron not only answer questions on strategy and financial products with our Business Builder members, but also how to sell and implement the strategy and how to deal with common objections that may come up.

When one of our expert monitors shares strategy implementation ideas, or answer client questions for an advisor, everyone in the Business Builder program has access to that discussion. This special discussion forum allows you to keep up to date on what's going on in the field, the latest marketing ideas, who's doing what, what's working, what isn't working. You do not get this inside information on the standard membership forums. If you want to take your college funding practice to the next level, having access to this special discussion forum is practically mandatory.
