Cannon Financial Institute

Cannon Trust School II

This course continues a three-part series in the technical competencies and skills required to perform complex trust administration responsibilities.

Students should have successfully completed Cannon Trust I before registering for Cannon Trust II.  Those seeking the CTFA™ designation are encouraged to continue through Cannon Trust III.

We recommend those new to the industry begin with Cannon Trust Fundamentals. Likewise, due to the technical and administrative nature of this course, business development professionals should consider Financial Advisor’s Course on Trusts (FACTs).

Course materials may include our Tools and Techniques of Trust Planning ($165).  This course concludes with a comprehensive exam.
