For Education Partners



CFP Board CE sponsorship and program registration is granted on an annual, calendar-year basis. Registration renewal for the coming year is made available in the fall; email notifications will be sent to CE Sponsors announcing the opening of the registration renewal period.

During this period, CE Sponsors will be able to log into their online accounts to renew their sponsor registration and renew any eligible CE programs for the following year.
