Essential Packages:
Self-Study Education Programs

Flexible certificate-level study programs designed for your busy schedule.

Our Essential and EssentialPlus Packages allow you the freedom to complete your education program on your own time and on your own terms. Take as much or as little time as you need to complete your CFP® certification education. 


Enroll in a self-study course at any time, and take up to 90 days to complete each course. We recommend you stay on pace, but we understand life happens and you may need to take a break in your studies. 

Select to pay course-by-course or purchase a bundle and save with full up-front payment. These payment options not only fit your budget, but also make reimbursement opportunities a breeze.

All tests and quizzes are taken directly in your Learning Management System, with no proctors or hidden testing fees.
