  • 100-character maximum
  • Tax-related sessions qualify for IRS EA CEs. Your attendees who are Enrolled Agents should supply their "P-TIN" number on your sign-in sheet if NAPFA doesn't already have it - it's a P plus 8 digits.
  • - -
  • Name/designations/title plus, if different than above, company name, email, phone.
  • / /
  • :

  • Include facility name, street address, city and state. If conference call/screen-sharing session/webinar instead of in-person gathering, please type "Virtual."
  • 50 minutes of instruction = 1 CE, 100 minutes = 2 CEs, etc. An additional 25 minutes = 0.5 CE. You may also offer a 30-minute program for 0.5 CFP CE and a 25-minute program for 0.5 NAPFA CE. IRS EA CEs are awarded in whole numbers only; fractions will be rounded down.
  • * = NAPFA Core Area subjects. For programs offering more than 1 CE, you may select more than one subject area, with a minimum of 1 CE per area.

    CFP does not offer CEs for programs on marketing/prospecting, practice management, or computer hard/software. Information security and compliance topics may qualify if they focus on complying with regulations. See CFP's "Principal Knowledge Topics" at
  • A timed outline with detailed bullets should be used for half-day or longer sessions.
  • Learning Objective #1
    Learning Objective #2
    Learning Objective #3
    Think like a professor writing a syllabus, in short, SIMPLE chunks: “After this course, participants will know/be able to/understand/demonstrate/show how…” These Learning Objectives should appear on an introductory slide in the speaker's presentation.
  • Use a sentence or two verifying that the presenter has 1.) the appropriate academic degree[s], 2.) relative industry credentialing, OR 3.) a minimum of 5 years of experience in the field.
  • Please notify NAPFA after our program if the presenter did not meet your expectations, and we won't share the CE application.
  • NAPFA CEs and EA CEs are granted unless you hear otherwise from NAPFA, and you'll be notified about any CFP CEs via email within 7-10 business days. CFP CEs should be described as "pending" in any program descriptions until confirmed.

    NAPFA pays CFP’s fees for Local Groups; MIX Groups pay their own CFP CE fees of $25 per course CE/half-CE, plus $1.25 per CFP certificant per CFP CE/half-CE earned. Make payment here ( at the time of application.

    All groups pay CFP's $100 late fee themselves if you direct NAPFA to submit your program to CFP AFTER it has occurred. There's no charge for NAPFA CEs/IRS EA CEs.
