Registration for the Personal Financial Specialist (PFS), Accredited in Business Valuation (ABV) and Certified in Financial Forensics (CFF) exams is now open year-round, and each exam will be offered twice a year. Previously, registration was limited and exams were offered only once a year.

Below are the remaining exam windows for this year’s credential exams. Candidates must schedule a test date and location during these windows:
