Upon our investigation, we found that it is not
necessary, or is it a requirement for any provider
of CE credits to submit their CE offerings to be “approved”
by FPSC. We as so many other providers, fall into the
“verifiable” category that the FPSC will accept. FPSC
leaves it up to the individual to determine if the content
meets the CFP CE requirements. This is very evident
and can be found on the FPSC website here -
CFP CE Credit Rules.
In reference to the above, Pro-Seminars received the
following email from Max Grubyy, Development Specialist at
the FPSC on July 30, 2015 which states…“FPSC undoubtedly
appreciates the long standing relationship we have with you
(Pro-Seminars) as a CE provider, although not formally
approved. As you well noted, the program is not mandatory
and CFP professionals are free to self-assess the courses
they take to match the appropriate categories.
