Through Horizons, a program offered by The American College, NAIFA members can complete the CFP certification curriculum which will allow them to sit for the CFP certification examination administered by the CFP Board of Standards. Horizons is presented in a live study-group environment with lectures on DVD by the same faculty who write the textbooks.

To receive the designation, an individual must successfully complete a broad program covering several financial services-related subjects.
