The CFP® certification is a professional certification mark for financial planners conferred by the Certified Financial Planner Board of Standards, Inc. (CFP Board). The CFP® certification must be periodically renewed by meeting CFP Board's ongoing competency requirements of continuing education and by adhering to CFP Board's Code of Ethics and Professional Responsibility. Courses available for credit towards the CFP® certification have been approved to meet the continuing education requirements of the CFP Board.
Only CFP® professionals can earn these credits. You must be previously certified by the CFP Board to qualify for these credits. If you are not a CFP® professional then you should "Decline" this credit type when taking a course that gives you the option to add these continuing education credits.
NOTE: In order to cover the escalating costs of the course registration with the CFP Board, additional charges often apply when adding this credit type.
