The Retirement Advisor University (TRAU) has formed The Plan Sponsor University (TPAU) to educate and train employers to better manage their corporate retirement plan(s) on behalf of their participants, help improve outcomes and to introduce plan sponsors to plan advisors who can help them to accomplish these goals. 

TPSU offers employers charged with the responsibility of company retirement plan oversight the opportunity to increase their knowledge and expertise in areas such as retirement plan design and operation, management of their fiduciary obligations, improving outcomes for those who participate and, upon completion of the program, awards the enrollee certification as a C(k)PS - Certified 401(k) Plan Specialist.

The university is a collaboration with the UCLA Anderson School of Management Executive Education that launched in 2010 by offering the C(k)P - Certified 401(k) Professional designation for plan advisors. TPSU follows suit by offering the first comprehensive and national online and in-person workplace retirement plan certification program to business owners, financial professionals, benefits specialists and other plan fiduciaries.
