For Education Partners


January 2015 - Registered Program Newsletter

Dear Colleagues,

Happy New Year! I hope this message finds each of you well and in the midst or the start of a rewarding term. There are a number of exciting new initiatives that we are embarking on in 2015, from the CFP Board Career Center, the 2015 Job Task Analysis, new renewal registration requirements, and a variety of different opportunities for data-sharing between CFP Board and our valued education partners. We will announce specifics regarding many of these initiatives during our January 2015 webinar. It is important that you and your colleagues plan to attend. I urge you to stay in-touch in the coming weeks and months ahead. Share our newsletter and webinars with faculty colleagues, and examine all of the resources that are available to you, your program and students at www.CFP.net/RegisteredPrograms. If you have questions or want to talk about your program, please do not hesitate to email us at RegisteredPrograms@CFPBoard.org to schedule a call. CFP Board is grateful for each of our education partnerships and, perhaps just as important, our collaboration with faculty and program directors as we work together in reaching our shared objectives. Best wishes for a happy, healthy and rewarding 2015.

Very Truly Yours,

Charles R. Chaffin, Ed.D.
Director of Academic Programs and Initiatives

CFP Board Launches Career Center

On January 7, 2015, CFP Board officially launched its new Career Center. Now students and graduates of financial planning programs can access this FREE online resource that connects them to job postings and internship opportunities, as well as a wealth of career development resources and information relating to the financial planning field.

The CFP Board Career Center is a one-stop online destination for those interested in a career as a financial planner and the CFP® certification, providing job and internship listings, useful career management content, and helpful information for CFP® professionals and hopefuls are every stage of their career.
