What Our Students Have to Say

“Specialized skills are the key to settlement planning, making the courses at SPEC very valuable to anyone transitioning into the profession. Even as an experienced settlement planner, I benefitted from the SPEC courses. If you are serious about settlement planning, I highly recommend becoming a Registered Settlement Planner.”
Charles Schell, RSP

“The settlement planning profession has needed a reputable, reliable, and independent source for high-level education, training, and professional certification. That source is SPEC. Taking and completing the coursework at SPEC and becoming a member of the Registry of Settlement Planners were well worth the cost of both time and money. The increased respect and regard from clients and the trial attorneys that refer them has been most gratifying. I highly recommend SPEC and the RSP.”
