The CFP Board is currently updating the states in which licensing requirements are exempt.
In full, CFP professionals need to complete the CFP Certification Examination, as well as completing the CFP Board’s Fitness Standards for Candidates and Professionals Eligible for Reinstatement. CFP professionals must also agree to abide by CFP Board’s Code of Ethics and Professional Responsibility and Rules of Conduct, which ensures that professionals always put the interests of the client first. They must also comply with the Financial Planning Practice Standards, which allows clients to enjoy set expectations from their financial planner.
