For Education Partners


Program Registration

Continuing Education (CE) Sponsors, upon approval of their sponsorship application, may submit courses to CFP Board for review by using the appropriate program application process described below.


Active General CE Sponsors can submit General CE Programs through their online account. A video guide to submitting General CE Program applications can be found here.

CFP Board only accepts programs that address topics identified in CFP Board's Principal Topics list identified through CFP Board's comprehensive Job Task Analysis. Program requirements can be found on the General CE Sponsors page.

General CE Program Application

If you choose to submit your program manually by submitting the General CE Program Application (PDF), instead of using the online submission system, an additional $100 manual processing fee will apply. This fee is assessed in addition to the regular program application fees.


Online registration is not available for Ethics CE Programs. Ethics CE Sponsors need to submit an Ethics CE Program Application in order to register their program with CFP Board. The program application needs to address the content, learning objective, and instructor eligibility requirements as described in the Ethics CE Sponsor Registration Agreement.
