Continuing Education Approval Program


CFP® professionals and FPSC Level 1® Certificants in Financial Planning have an ongoing obligation to ensure that their knowledge and competence remains current. To renew certification, CFP professionals must attest to completing 25 hours of Continuing Education (CE) activities each year, while FPSC Level 1 certificants must attest to 12 hours per year.

FPSC-approved CE Activities have been reviewed to ensure that they meet FPSC requirements. FPSC-approved CE Credits are the Continuing Education activities of choice for CFP professionals and FPSC Level 1 certificants, providing assurance that CE activities will count toward the annual requirement to maintain certification.
