Comprehensive financial knowledge is essential to be an effective financial coach. A coach without this foundation may inadvertently cause harm to clients. This is why we require all Coaching Essentials participants demonstrate financial competency with one of the following certifications in good standing: AFC®, CFP®, ChFC®, CFA®, CPA® or AFCPE’s Money Management Essentials course.
Coaching Essentials is the beginning of our FFC® Certification program, but may also be taken as a stand-alone professional development course. Our program offers flexibility and depth of skill, to support you wherever you are in your professional journey. Learn more about FFC® Certification.
