Re-enrollment Policy Change

The CFedS Certification Panel has recently approved the following policy:

Trainees who have been withdrawn from the Program and re-register will be required to retake only the Unit Exam(s) they have not previously passed. This is a change in our exam policy.

In the past those re-registering for the Program were required to pass all 7 quizzes and all three Units of the exam.

Under the new policy they will not be required to retake the Exam Unit(s) they have already passed. This will allow trainees to focus on the material they failed the first time instead of material they have already mastered. The fee to re-register will remain $800.00.
