The Futurist Institute Courses Approved by Certified Financial Planner Board of Standards

iCrowdNewswire - Mar 14, 2018

The Futurist Institute courses have been approved for valuable continuing education hours.

Courses produced by The Futurist Institute to help analysts and economists become futurists have been approved for continuing education (CE) credit hours by the Certified Financial Planner (CFP) Board of Standards. 

The Futurist Institute confers the Futurist and Long-Term Analyst™ (FLTA) designation that recognizes each who has completed its program to become a Certified Futurist™.

All five courses currently part of the FLTA certification program have been approved for continuing education by the CFP Board:


  • The Future of Work
  • The Future of Data
  • The Future of Transportation
  • The Future of Finance
  • Futurist Fundamentals

The Futurist Institute online courses focus on the professional, business, market, and economic impacts of new and emerging technologies, including self-driving cars, big data, roboadvising, the Hyperloop, machine learning, IoT, AI, crowdfunding, FinTech, digital currencies, Bitcoin, blockchain, and more!

These courses also present best practices to craft futurist strategies, analyze data, and conduct scenario planning for businesses.

Jason Schenker, the Chairman of The Futurist institute and the world’s leading financial futurist, said “We are very excited to have our courses recognized as valuable tools for financial planners.”

Schenker founded The Futurist Institute in 2016, and he was recently a mentor at SXSW, where he shared his views on the future of work and the need for futurist training. Schenker is also the editor of The Robot and Automation Almanac – 2018, which was created by The Futurist Institute.

“This is a big win for The Futurist Institute,” Schenker noted. “It is also just one of many steps we will be taking in the weeks and months ahead. We look forward to getting our courses approved and recognized for their value by other professional bodies. We are excited to expand the content of The Futurist Institute.”

The Futurist Institute will be adding three additional courses to its program this month:


  • The Future of Leadership
  • The Future of Energy
  • The Future of Healthcare

The Futurist Institute is based in Austin, Texas.
