Applied Financial Planning (AFP) Certification Examination



Based on the new Competency Profile issued in June 2017, the exam structure and weighting will be modified.

    • AFP Exam 1 will remain a 100 stand-alone, multiple-choice question exam.
    • AFP Exam 2 will transition from an examination with one case study and multiple constructed-response questions to an examination of 3 – 4 case studies, each with 3 – 4 related constructed-response questions, where candidates will be required to generate a written response.

The current AFP Exam 1 and AFP Exam 2 will cease to be available on October 15, 2017. The new AFP Exam 1 and new AFP Exam 2 based on the new Competency Profile will be available for candidates on October 16, 2017.

Candidates do not have to select while enrolling nor advise CSI of which version of exams they will be taking. Successful completion of all versions of the exams will be recognized equally.

On-going exam preparation efforts based on existing approved learning paths should enable candidates to prepare adequately for either the current or the new version of the examination.
