Specifically, you will gain enhanced estate planning skills, an introduction to important tax and estate planning concepts, useful tips, and an updated reference source. You will develop a working understanding of how to initiate and undertake effective estate planning for clients. The course emphasizes the maintenance of flexibility in the estate plan while managing estate planning risk.
