Client First Principle
Presenter: SNJK Venkatesam
Length/# of CPD credits: 30 minutes / 0.5 CPD Point
Objectives: In this webinar you will learn various aspects about the relevance and importance of the Client First Principle in an advisor's practice.
The requirement of acquiring 15 CPD points is immediately after the issue of initial certification and falls due when the CFP professional renews his/her certification at annual intervals.
The CPD points are to be acquired in the certification period and any excess points are not to be carried forward in the next certification period.
The failure to renew on the due date, apart from a late renewal penalty, requires the earning of extra CPD points (if beyond 6 months of due date of renewal).
Failure to fulfill the continuing professional development criterion within the prescribed period will result in non-renewal of CFP certification and will also preclude any use of the CFP marks by the CFP professional.
Unsupported, misstated or fraudulent reporting of CPD points shall be viewed seriously and may call for action by FPSB Ltd. and be grounds for disciplinary action leading to the revocation of CFP certification.
