The Next 20 Week Group Starts December 7!

CFedS Trainees & Applicants,

Our next group for the 20 Week method will start on December 7!. If you do not know about the 20 Week method of getting through the training, check out the information on the CFedS web site.

  • For Trainees, log in and click on 20 Week Model.
  • For applicants, go to the website. Click on How To Become a CFedS, scroll down the page near the bottom where it discusses and provides a link to the 20 Week Method.
The 20 Week method that starts on December 7 is intended to have you ready for the June 3, 2011 exam. Does the 20 Week Method help you pass the exam? Typically we see people who participated in the 20 Week Method had a 25% better passing rate than people who did not. We start three "20 Week" groups each year, in April, August & December; to have you ready for the October, February & June exams.
