Trinity Pension's Thomas Carline Receives Official QKA Designation

COLUMBUS, OH--(Marketwired - Sep 24, 2014) - Thomas Carline, the DC Relationship Manager at Trinity Pension Consultants' Columbus office, has recently earned his Qualified 401(k) Administrator credential. Financial consultants who specialize in retirement planning and specifically 401(k) planning generally earn this distinction.

"Trinity Pension Consultants' clients expect professionals with detailed knowledge of administration of 401(k) plans," Carline said. "The QKA credential will allow him to meet that standard and show that Trinity is committed to giving its clients the best possible financial advice."

"Designations are part of the Trinity culture," said Carline. "Highly educated and respected employees will help lead to Trinity's goal of being the best third party administrator in Ohio."

The process to get a QKA credential can take up to two years, but Carline completed his in about four months. To earn the designation, applicants must pass four exams, have at least two years of relevant work experience and submit two letters of recommendation.

Carline said that he will continue earning designations and refining his skills as a consultant. He plans to earn his Qualified Pension Administrator designation by the end of this year and his Certified Pension Consultant designation in the first half of next year.

Anthony Warren, principal at Trinity Pension Consultants, said that the credential will distinguish Carline as a knowledgeable consultant.

"Trinity financial advisors are sources of reliable and accurate advice," Warren said. "Earning the QKA credential only illustrates that our consultants are committed to living up to that reputation."
