Length Of The CFP And QAFP Programs

How long does it take to work through the CFP and QAFP programs?


Including the FP Canada courses, it’s a 14-16 month process depending on when you get started and which exam you are aiming to write. For the Core Curriculum, it will take you roughly 150 hours to complete all 7 Units going the self-study route. If you choose to attend the webinars then it will take roughly 250 hours to work through the 7 Units. We recommend setting aside 10-15 hours a week.  


Typically takes about 12-14 months to complete the entire program including the steps with FP Canada and writing the QAFP Exam.
