Intensive Review Program (IRP) for CFP® Courses

Accelerate your CFP® Certification studies with a live classroom review. In your optional IRP component, highly qualified faculty members from The American College of Financial Services provide you with 18 hours of intensive review of all the major course concepts. You will also have the ability to ask questions and interact with fellow students. On the last day of the session, you will take your final exam, so there’s no need to make a separate appointment at a testing center. IRP sessions are a great way to study along with an expert right up to the moment you begin your exam. Students should still study their text and course materials prior to the IRP to be fully prepared.

Taking Your IRP
We recommend that you follow the recommended course sequence, and enroll in IRPs when they are available for your next course. If you are interested in enrolling in an IRP that is not for your next recommended course, please speak with a counselor by calling 888-263-7265. To enroll in an IRP please add $350.00 on top of tuition.

If you have any questions, please read the IRP FAQ.
