When Should You Start?

At Dalton Education, we set a general timeline for the education and review courses and suggest that a student can sit for and pass the CFP® Exam within one year of enrollment through our Virtual Classroom program. The Self-Paced program can take more time (or less!), depending on how dedicated a student is to completing the coursework.

Our Virtual Classroom courses start every other month with classes occurring twice a week. Below are the existing schedules.
