WASHINGTON — The Municipal Securities Rulemaking Board has requested public comment on whether to require dealers to ensure that their municipal securities staff receive annual muni bond training.

The MSRB proposal would alter the continuing education requirements laid out in the board's Rule G-3 on classification of principals and representatives to require a minimum of one hour of training focused on municipal securities for professionals whose jobs primarily focus on munis. Firms are already required to offer continuing education to their staffs, but are not required to provided training specifically targeted to work in the municipal market.
