The Certified Financial Planner designation is the elite certification among financial professionals, with approx. 27%+ of financial advisors holding it. There are four components to becoming a Certified Financial Planner, education, examination, experience, and ethics. The education component requires 5 graduate-level courses that cover insurance, investments, retirement planning, estate planning, and taxation. After the education is completed, the planner has to sit for a 6-hour exam that only has a 60% pass rate. In addition to the education and examination, three years’ worth of financial planning experience is required before earning the certification and all CFPs are held to the highest ethical standards in the industry.
