Program Registration

For Education Partners


Program Registration

Upon approval of their sponsorship application, Continuing Education (CE) Sponsors may submit program applications to CFP Board for review through the CE Sponsor Portal.


General CE programs are those that address topics identified in CFP Board's Principal Knowledge Topics. Program requirements can be found on the General CE Sponsors page. 

In addition, CFP Board provides several resource guides to assist you in planning your program.  These guides follow best practices in program delivery and course design, and follow the evaluation criteria required of our CE Quality Partners.

Active CE Sponsors interested in offering a Live CFP Board-approved Ethics program are encouraged to do so. Those CE Sponsors with a Learning Management System that meets the program delivery criteria are eligible to offer the self-study version of the program.
