The Certified Corporate FP&A Professional program has educational and experience requirements that candidates must meet before earning the credential. However, candidates may take the exam before meeting those requirements. Before you enroll in the FPAC program and register for your first exam, you must meet the entrance requirements:
- Have a bachelor's or equivalent degree in any subject OR be currently enrolled in an undergraduate program with a finance, business or accounting major and be on track to graduate within two years
- Understand the professional conduct requirement (you will be asked to agree to comply with the AFP Standards of Ethical Conduct).
You can view our eligibility requirements, which details what documentation is needed depending on your specific background. Eligibility is not reviewed until after documentation and payment is received. Applicants who are deemed eligible for the examination will receive a confirmation email from AFP. Applicants deemed ineligible to sit for the FPAC examination will receive ineligibility notification and a refund of the examination fee (only).
