AFPK Certification : Period of Certification
01. Application period for certification
The AFPK certification should be acquired within a maximum period of 3 years after passing the AFPK certification exam (exam passers up to 2006: 5 years). When applying for AFPK certification 12 months after passing the AFPK certification exam, the applicant can receive an AFPK certification by obtaining a continuing education (CE) credit calculated based on the period that elapsed from the date when the exam was passed. A continuing education credit is calculated using a ratio of 0.83 credits of continuous education per month to the number of months that have passed (not rounded off to the nearest whole number). An ethics and practice standards curriculum of more than 1 credit per year should be included.
