FPSC-Approved Core Curriculum
Enrolling in an FPSC-approved Core Curriculum program is the first step to obtaining Certified Financial Planner® certification or FPSC Level 1® Certification in Financial Planning. Core Curriculum programs are offered by institutions across Canada, both in person and online.
Become an FPSC-Approved Core Curriculum Provider
Educators wishing to be considered as Core Curriculum providers must demonstrate how their courses relate to the CFP Professional Competency Profile by providing course learning outcomes and a sampling of financial planning content and assessment items. This ensures a high focus on the practical nature of the competencies as the key driver of learning outcomes. Applications for approval of Core Curriculum courses must also adhere to the Educator Guidelines for FPSC-Approved Core Curriculum Courses.
To learn more about FPSC’s requirements and the application process, please contact Kelly Becken, Education Consultant.
