La Sala joins an elite group of business advisors who have received this designation and are a part of the Exit Planning Institute’s international community of CEPAs.

About the CEPA Program

The Certified Exit Planning Advisor program was specifically designed for business advisors who work closely with owners of privately held companies. The organizing principle of the program is Master Planning, the alignment of the three legs of the stool (business, personal, financial), which is executed through the implementation of a process called the Value Acceleration Methodology™. Using an executive MBA-style format, the program includes a combination of lectures, group discussions, case studies and individual exercises to introduce participants to these concepts and to reinforce skills. The program is taught by the Exit Planning Institute’s faculty of advisors, who are all sought after subject matter experts and authors.

To receive the CEPA designation, Steven J. La Sala completed the rigorous 4-day program that involved approximately one hundred hours pf pre-course study, thirty hours of classroom instruction, and the successful completion of a 3-hour proctored exam.
