Qualifying programs

The continuing education activities need NOT be sponsored by AFP or pre-approved for credit by AFP to qualify. AFP is unable to review and pre-approve recertification activities for individual certificants.


Examples of programs that do NOT qualify for CTP credits:

  • Sessions specific to the benefits and features of a company’s treasury or finance related products and services
  • Fundamental, introductory or exam-prep courses in finance or cash/treasury management
  • Personal career development sessions not specific to the finance or cash/treasury management fields
  • Business development/sales skills sessions
  • Technology-specific courses such as, but not limited to, Quickbooks and Microsoft Word
  • Archived webinars/teleconferences without assessments.

Sponsor registration NOT required

The AFP does allow CE Providers to register as CTP / CCM CE providers, but does not require this registration.  The registration allows for providers to feature the CTP and / or FP&A logos and program approval in promotional literature.  While FunCPE has elected not to register as a sponsor, many of our courses do meet the CPE credit guidelines.

CTPs and CCMs are not required to obtain CPE course approvals for continuing education courses.

I already submit CPE for my CPA (or EA, CFP, etc.) designation. Can I use these for my CTP credentials?

Yes. As long as you have taken the appropriate number of CPE hours in the specified areas, then you may also submit them to AFP.
