Financial Paraplanner Qualified ProfessionalSM - FPQP®

FPQP® Professional Designation Program

The Financial Paraplanner Qualified ProfessionalSM, or FPQP® program, is a designation program that is the perfect introduction to personal financial planning. This program provides an ideal starting point for those new to the financial planning profession with no prior experience, as well as for planners who wish to provide their support staff with additional insights. 

Begin the program at any time with OnDemand classes. You'll have:
  • Access to pre-recorded, instructor-led class lectures that guide you through key concepts in the curriculum.
  • Freedom to view the lectures based on your schedule. You can start, stop and rewind as you need

The FPQP® designation streamlines the cost and time toward your next credential.
As you advance your career, the College recognizes the time and investment it takes to earn industry-recognized credentials. Upon completion of the FPQP®, graduates receive exemption from course FP511 in the College's CFP® certification education program.

Plus, completion of professional designations programs can also help you fulfill continuing education (CE) requirements:
  • If you are a CFP® professional, all designation programs (except the WMS® and LUTCF® programs) fulfill 28 hours of CE as part of your CFP® certification renewal.
  • If you currently hold a professional designation from the College, completion of a new professional designation fulfills CE hours as part of the renewal of your current designation.
