FP Canada announced the members of its President’s List for the June 2019 sitting of the CFP examination on Wednesday.
The President’s List honours individuals from across Canada who received the highest marks on the national exam. Craig Hughes, from Winnipeg, Man., Vaughn Hoskins, from St. John’s, NL, and Andrew Porteous, from Richmond Hill, Ont., were named first, second and third place, respectively.
The three candidates stood out among a total of 717 who wrote the final national CFP examination in June. They will be recognized at the Celebration of the Profession Dinner at the Sheraton Centre Toronto on Nov. 19, set to take place during Financial Planning Week 2019.
To qualify to write the six-hour CFP exam, candidates must have first completed an FP Canada-Approved Core Curriculum education program, the FPSC Level 1 Examination in Financial Planning and an FP Canada-Approved Capstone Course.
After three years of relevant work experience, successful CFP examination candidates are eligible to apply for a CFP certification. However, the requirements for obtaining CFP certification are changing on Jan. 1, 2020, when the FPSC Level 1 certification will be replaced by the qualified associate financial planner (QAFP) certification.
