The Certified Financial Planner (CFP) designation is a professional certification mark for financial planners conferred by the Certified Financial Planner Board of Standards (CFP Board) in the United States. The certification is generally viewed as the gold standard designation in the financial planning industry. The certification is not a government designation, nor an accredited degree, but is managed by the Certified Financial Planner Board of Standards, Inc. (CFP Board) which was founded in 1985 as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
To receive authorization to use the designation, the candidate must meet education, examination, experience, and ethics requirements, and pay an ongoing certification fee.
The candidate must have a bachelor's degree (or higher), or its equivalent in any discipline, from an accredited college or university. Individuals who seek to challenge the CFP certification exam are required to take a financial planning capstone course before sitting for the exam. To maintain certification, in the United States, license holders are required to complete thirty hours of continuing education, of which two hours must be board-approved Ethics CE and the remaining 28 are General CE.
