Getting Started on the PFS Credential

Getting started

To help you get started on the PFS credential, we have put together a series of pages to walk you thru the requirements.  

We start with the examination qualifications.  Often as you prepare for the examination, you will meet the education needs.  After looking at the education requirements, we'll walk you through the experience qualifications.

Do you meet all of the requirements
to become a PFS credential holder?
