Why take this course?

There are many benefits to you and your company if you studying our Certificate in Employee Share Plans:

  1. Be up-to-date - at a time of significant changes - in plan designs, governance and regulatory requirements, we provide up-to-date practical guidance to help you work through the issues.
  2. Be cost effective - we know that many of our course graduates are able to deal with more of the issues in-house than send them to outside advisers, saving time and company money.
  3. Reduce risk - internal controls are only as good as the people overseeing them. Course graduates know the rules and the importance of compliance, reducing risk to the company and its executives and even the risks of criminal penalties.
  4. See the whole picture - some people working in share plans only see and know about their aspect of the plans they work on. This course covers all key components of designing and operating executive and employee share plans. It enables our course graduates to understand and work with internal stakeholders such as legal, tax, accounting, HR and finance groups as well as external advisers like lawyers, consultants and administrators.
  5. Stay connected - we invite people to our alumni events so that you can stay connected to others in our industry and keep up-to-date.

The course is provided by some of the leading experts in this area, mostly from Tapestry Compliance, and we sometimes invite other experts to present on topics such as design and accounting for share plans, to make sure you have the opportunity to learn from the best.
