LPL Training and Development

LPL Financial offers an extensive mix of training programs to help employees in their personal and professional development. Among them are programs specifically for managers, executives, emerging leaders, women, and anyone else who aspires to optimize their skills and career opportunities.

The LPL Approach

LPL employs what we refer to as a 3E’s approach to training and development. That includes:

  • Experience — on the job learning
  • Exposure — learning through others
  • Education — formal training

The following are just a few examples from our vast collection of training and development programs.

LPL Development Center

The LPL Development Center features numerous resources to help employees at any stage of their career stretch their talents, expand their skill sets, and prepare for new opportunities. Among them are tools for skills and performance assessment and roadmaps for career advancement.

Some are specific to working at LPL and/or in the highly regulated financial services industry. Others are specific to leadership development. Still others help build specific skills, such as coaching, managing people, data-driven decision-making, and agile project management.

LPL’s Corporate University

LPL U is our corporate university and provides an easy-to-use portal for a more personal way to learn. Many courses are self-paced and online. Others are led by instructors in physical or virtual classrooms. 

LPL U includes Harvard ManageMentor® for management and leadership skills training and Skillsoft® for a variety of business-related courses.

Talent Review

Guiding our employees in their career progression is an important part of what we do. Among the programs we offer is Talent Review. It's an annual process where LPL's overall talent is assessed, high potential leaders are identified, and succession plans for senior level leaders are confirmed.

Ethics, Safety, Data Privacy and More

There are certain concepts that are fundamental to maintaining a great workplace and work environment. That’s why at LPL we make it mandatory for employees at all levels of our company to regularly participate in required training programs.

Topics include data privacy and security, ethical behavior, workplace safety, workplace harassment, anti-money laundering, home office security and privacy, and workplace violence, among others.
