What are the CFP Board Principle Topics"?
For a document to be accredited, its content must align with one of eight CFP Board Principle Topics.
What counts as accreditable content?
We can only accredit content that matches the selected knowledge topic and therefore must discount any pages with extraneous content. This includes titles pages, promotional / marketing material and disclaimers. As we calculate CE credit against the number of words in the document, we cannot count any words contained in document images.If you are unsure whether your content fits this criteria, contact us.
How long will it take for my content to be accredited?
We aim to have your content accredited and published on FA-IQ ThinkTank within a few days of your submission, however depending on the amount of submissions this can take up to one week.
How will I know that my content is accredited?
We will send you a notification by email once your content has been accredited. You will also notice a CE related logo next to your content on the FA-IQ ThinkTank site.
What happens if my content is not accepted for accreditation?
Your content may not be accredited if it does not fit a knowledge topic or is less than 1800 words (excluding extraneous content). We will notify you by email and publish the document on FA-IQ ThinkTank without CE accreditation.
