Benefits of Becoming a CE Sponsor

As a CFP Board-registered Continuing Education (CE) Sponsor, you will:

  • Reach a large audience. More than 68,000 CFP® professionals have earned their certification. These numbers will rise; the financial planning industry is expected to grow 30 percent by 2018, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
  • Generate income. All CFP® professionals must complete 30 hours of CE courses every two years. As a CE Sponsor, you can offer the necessary coursework and generate income for your organization in the process.
  • Provide financial planning education. CE classes are not exclusive to CFP® professionals. Attorneys, insurance agents, CPAs and other professionals can also benefit from CE courses. By providing continuing education, you can offer training for CFP® professionals, advance the development of CFP® professionals, and allow others on staff to become involved with financial planning.
  • Establish a greater online presence. As an approved CE provider, your programs registered with CFP Board will be listed on our website with a link to your website.
