Today FINRA announced the extension of currently open qualification exam windows in an effort to alleviate hardship from the recent coronavirus outbreak.
As the challenges continue, FINRA elected to extend all soon-expiring open enrollment windows through May 31.
“Due to the temporary closing of the Prometric test centers, FINRA is extending expiring qualification examination windows until May 31, 2020,” FINRA stated on its website. “The relief provided does not extend beyond the identified rules and requirements.”
FINRA also stated that a return to normalcy is expected.
“As coronavirus-related risks decrease, member firms should expect to return to meeting any regulatory obligations for which relief has been provided.”
