Advanced CPFA Application

 What does it mean?

The goal of the Advanced CPFA is to encourage and reward advanced education and participation in the APT US & C and its State and Province Associations. Applicants must have a current CPFA at the time of application for the Advanced CPFA and, while work experience does not earn any points toward the Advanced CPFA, education points and non-work experience points may be used for maintaining the CPFA as well as earning the Advanced CPFA. The Advanced certification will require 15 experience points and 45 advanced education points.
