If CPE and continuing education is your goal, you can simply purchase and complete the education bundle or any individual course, without the certificate exam.
If you currently hold the PFS credential, these will qualify as continuing education requirements. There is no need to take the certificate exam as your PFS credential exam tests the material covered in the individual certificates.
CFP board has approved these courses to meet their requirements for CE credits. The AICPA will report CE credits to the CFP Board every two weeks on a rolling basis as courses are completed. To have your CE reported please complete the following steps as there is not an automated feed to the CFP Board.
