Specialty Credential Exam Scheduling and Offerings Expanded


The Institute is expanding registration and exam options for its specialty credentials.

 

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:
