There are more than 70,000 professionals in the United States authorized by CFP Board to use the CFP® certification marks. A significant number of those CFP® professionals are employed by a small number of national firms. CFP Board enjoys strong working relationships with many of these firms and helps support internal efforts to increase the number of CFP® professionals and to make sure that firms have an accurate understanding of the requirements for CFP® certification.
