The College for Financial Planning, based here, is offering advisor training for a financial planning designation that focuses on issues related to working with seniors -- a fast-growing age group that it says will represent 20 percent of the population within the next 25 years.

Course topics include trends in aging, chronic illness, and long-term care issues for seniors; financial, end-of-life, and estate planning; and Social Security; Medicaid and tax planning, senior housing, Alzheimer's and dementia, and the social and spiritual aspects of aging. This certification program also emphasizes on building the advisor's practice, including marketing to seniors.
