Earn A Professional Designation Along With Your AFIP Certification
Individuals who complete AFIP training and successfully pass the exam can now earn one of three professional designations: Certified Professional in Financial Services (CPFS), Senior Certified Professional in Financial Services (SPFS) or Master Certified Professional in Financial Services (MPFS). Going forward, certification diplomas will carry the appropriate professional designation and all current AFIP certified members in good standing (those who have been certified within the last two years) may use the appropriate acronym after their names. Individuals who fail to complete AFIP’s ongoing education requirements may not use the professional designation.To verify your status, contact AFIP at 817.428.2434 or e-mail them at [email protected].
