Learning new skills

I retired from quality improvement project management at 55 after 37 years. I have been succesful building and managing a retirement porfolio. My knowledge of investing, planning, portfolio allocation, withdrawl plans,... is self taught. I am considering a program in Personnal Financial Planning offered online by Ashworth University. Does anyone have any experience with Ashworth or entry into the finanacial plannig field?

Do you live close by it?
Why no go to a brick and mortar school for the interaction?

I would suggest looking at the certified financial planner program instead, there are any number of them offered by reputable institutions, both online and bricks and mortar. I am not familiar with the Ashworth program.

I would not consider any other designations besides the CPA-PFS or the CFA (this one is the biggie for analysts) to be adequate for entering the field of financial planning.
