Financial Planning Course for Insurance Professionals (FPP)


Please note: This course is no longer offered.

CSI's FPP program has been designed specifically for insurance professionals who already have their Mutual Fund Dealers Association (MFDA) license* and want to earn the Certified Financial Planner (CFP™) designation. It combines the Professional Financial Planning Course (PFPC) with the Securities Fundamentals for Financial Professionals (SFFP) course to offer a faster, smarter way to qualify to challenge the CFP exams.

Qualify to Write the CFP

Completing the FPP qualifies you to write the CFP exams. It's one of the fastest paths to this professional accreditation for insurance agents, and an important step toward expanding your service offering and profits.

*If you have completed the Canadian Securities Course, you only need to complete the PFPC to qualify to write the CFP exams.

Prerequisites: MFDA License. You can only enrol in this course as a component of CSI's Financial Planning Program (FPP) for Insurance Professionals.
