Summary

The CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER® or CFP® designation is a gold standard of knowledge in the financial services world. It denotes professionalism with a strong competency at the highest level of complexity and a commitment to ethics placing the clients’ interests first. These professionals have achieved education, experience and examination to earn the most widely recognized financial planning designation.

Candidates will work through a mix of courses and exams offered by BCC and FP Canada™. Note that the Advanced Curriculum will not be available at BCC until March 2020.

The BCC CFP® Certification Education Program is instructor and advisor supported – let our team help keep you on track as you learn the content, prepare for the exams, and achieve the designation!

On January 1, 2020, the QUALIFIED ASSOCIATE FINANCIAL PLANNER™ or QAFP™ designation replaced the old FPSC Level 1® certification. As part of this change, FP Canada™ has increased the requirements for QAFP™ certification, to create a designation demonstrating an understanding of foundational knowledge and experience to assist Canadians with less complex financial planning.

Candidates may take a few different routes to their designations and may decide to aim directly at CFP® certification, opt for QAFP™ certification as the final goal, or lock in their progress and earn the QAFP™ designation enroute to the CFP™ designation.
