2019 books for CEPI candidates

The NCEO publishes almost all of the texts assigned by the Certified Equity Professional Institute (CEPI) in its industry-standard certification program. Starting in 2020, CEP students no longer have to buy books from us; the CEPI is licensing the books from us and will gave digital access to you as part of your exam fee. Holders of CEPI certifications will also receive digital access from the CEPI. See the CEPI for details. However, we will be happy to sell print versions to those who like to hold the books in their hands. The new 2020 books will be available by February. The Securities Sources book will no longer be part of the CEPI curriculum and is going out of print.

Don't forget to order the CEPI Exam Prep Course when it is available! The updated 2020 course will open by March, and you can order it then.

Other Notes About the Books

Starting in 2020, the books are no longer indexed since the digital texts will be searchable. So the print books will not have indexes. They also will be perfect-bound, not spiral-bound, as the 2019 books were.

CEPI Exam Prep Course

Our CEPI Exam Prep Course runs every spring and fall to prepare candidates for the CEPI exam. Check back in early spring for the opening of the updated spring 2020 course.

CEPI Exam Discount for NCEO Members

The NCEO is on the CEPI Advisory Board, and the CEPI extends a discount to NCEO members (see below for eligibility). This opportunity saves you $200 on new Level 1 exam registration fees (normally $1,495 for U.S. registrations, $1,695 for non-U.S.). To take advantage of this offer, contact the CEPI at 408-554-2187.

Note: Eligible registrations include new Level 1 registrations for individuals who are involved in administering or managing their own company's equity programs. This cannot be combined with any other discounts. Deferrals and re-tests are not eligible for a discount. Individuals already registered are not eligible for a retroactive discount. Candidates from service providers do not qualify. Questions regarding eligibility can be directed to the CEPI at 408-554-2187.
