Curriculum

Students are given 12 months to complete the program, but the vast majority of the enrollees complete the materials within 15 weeks. There are four requirements for certification:

  1. Pass three exams; each one covers one of the three modules (students can purchase a three month-extension for $40)
  2. Complete one open-book case study (a one page set of facts based on a hypothetical client)
  3. Fill out a registration form and complete a student questionnaire, and
  4. Sign a code of ethics

Examination Requirements

Each exam is a 60 minute, 50-question, computer-administered exam - a passing score of 70% is required for each exam. Exams can only be taken sequentially, and the student needs to be notified of a passing grade before sitting for the next exam.

Exams are taken online, with a proctor (disinterested third party). There is no additional exam fee; it is included in the cost of your course tuition. If a re-take is necessary, a $75 charge will apply.

Additional Requirements

To earn this designation, candidates must have at least one year of work experience in the financial services industry or a bachelor's degree from an accredited college or university. The designation will not be granted until the required minimum number of hours has been fulfilled or a bachelor's degree has been granted.

Continuing Education Requirements

Designees must report 30 hours of CE every two years directly to IBF (Institute of Business and Finance), the administering company. Designees have a wide range of topics and methods to choose from (e.g., attending seminars, reading books, completing other courses, teaching, writing articles, etc.). Also, each year designees must remit a $100 annual renewal fee.
