When to Recertify
FP&A Certification is valid for three years. A Certified Corporate FP&A Professional must
earn and report a total of 45 continuing education (CE) credits
within every three year recertification cycle and pay the
recertification fee to maintain the FP&A credential.
Educational programs do not necessarily need to be produced by AFP
to qualify. Also, though highly encouraged, membership in AFP is
not required to maintain the FP&A credential, though membership
does earn continuing education credits.
It is the responsibility of each FP&A professional to maintain records
documenting qualified credits earned. AFP reserves the right to
audit that documentation. Any reported credits that cannot be
verified during an audit process will be disqualified. A program
agenda and a letter signed and dated by the program sponsor/provider
is acceptable documentation. Records of documentation should be
retained for two full years after completion of each three year
Continuing education credits are awarded at a rate of one credit
per fifty minutes of instruction.
