AICPA PFS Exam Sponsorship Program

Reduce the cost of preparing for and taking the PFS Exam

Funding for this program is provided by the Association of CPA Financial Planners (ACPAFP), an organization committed to promoting the CPA/PFS credential for CPA financial planners.   These awards are intended to encourage experienced CPAs who have an interest in personal financial planning to complete the examination requirement and ultimately obtain the CPA/PFS credential.


The sponsorship is only available to those that have not received a sponsorship payment in the past.  The payment will reimburse candidates for a portion of the expenses they have incurred after they complete the PFS exam.  Refer to the PFS Exam page ( for dates and details of the current exam. 

For PFP Section members, this sponsorship can reduce the net cost for preparing for and taking the PFS exam.

This 2-1/2 day class is offered in both spring and fall prior to each exam.
