AFPK® Certification Renewal
AFPK Certification Renewal : Continuing Education
01. Guide to a continuing education credit
For the renewal of AFPK certification, you will need to obtain a total of 20 credits including 2 credits in code of ethics during the last 2 years of certification. A continuing education credit is applied at the start of the effective period of certification.
FPSB Korea determines the core topics, a list of subjects that the AFPK certificant should know in order to provide financial planning services. If education related to core topics is completed, certification is acquired, or the certificant successfully lectures or publishes a document, the score is approved.
If more than 1 year has passed after the date of the maturity of the effective period of certification, 0.83 credits are added according to the total number of months. If 3 years have passed, the examinee must take the AFPK certification exam again.
