For the past twenty weeks I have been learning the importance of successful financial planning. (PRESENT PERFECT PROGRESSIVE)

Is this a correct present perfect progressive? Would the verbs be learning and planning?

    Yes. That's the present perfect progressive tense. The verb is have been learning. The word "planning" in this sentence is a noun.

    There is only one main verb in the sentence, and it's correctly written as the present perfect progressive, yes.

    The verb form "planning," however, is being used as a gerund (noun form).
