Continuing Education Providers

For Education Partners


Continuing Education Providers

CFP Board's goal is to ensure CFP® professionals have access to a variety of quality CE opportunities.   We are always seeking Continuing Education (CE) providers to partner with to offer diversity in content, format and delivery.

Organizations that register as General and/or Ethics CE sponsors are able to offer programs pre-accepted for CE credit. CFP Board requires CFP® professionals to complete 28 hours of general CE every two years and two hours of CFP Board-approved Ethics CE. 

CE sponsors have the opportunity to reach more than 75,000 CFP® professionals nationwide; a majority of whom complete 90% of their required CE through a CE sponsored program. 

IMPORTANT: 2017 Renewal Information


The 2017 Renewal Sponsorship and Programs Renewal Schedule is available for those who wish to be 2017 CE Sponsors. 

The 2017 Terms and Conditions for General CE Sponsors and Ethics CE Sponsors are available for download and review.
