CFP Continuing Education

In order for a family partner to maintain certification, 20 continuing education units are required over the 24 month certification period. CEUs are obtained through attendance at relevant conferences, classroom style trainings/endorsements, or online courses/webinars. CEU credit will only be accepted on topics covered in the basic certification training or from the TX CFP core competencies. The endorsement trainings offered by Via Hope each receive CEU credits.

CEUs do not have to be obtained formally. (Some professions required a fee for CEUs, Certified Family Partners do not.) Verification of attendance through a certificate documenting the number of training hours, a conference agenda booklet with listings of the workshops you attended, or neither of those is available, a brief summary of what you learned by attending or participating in a webinar, will be accepted as documentation.

A CFP who is interested in participating in a class, on-line training, or conference but questions whether CEUs will be granted for this, must submit a Request for Training Approval for C.E.U.s form.  To obtain approval prior to the class, the request must be submitted a minimum of thirty days prior to the start of the training.  Approval can be requested after completing the training; however, there is no guarantee that it will be approved.

If CEU requirements are not met within the two year required period, the CFP’s certification is suspended until the CFP has completed the required CEU hours.
