NEWSFLASH: CFP Board Retake Policy
The CFP Board has issued new guidelines when it comes to retaking the exam. Effective January 2012, you may only take the exam a total of five times in your life with an exception for those who have previously taken the exam four or more times. We have created the following table to illustrate how many times you may take the exam based on the number of times you previously sat for the exam.
|Never taken the exam||5 attempts remaining|
|Took the exam 1 time prior to January 1, 2012||4 attempts remaining|
|Took the exam 2 times prior to January 1, 2012||3 attempts remaining|
|Took the exam 3 times prior to January 1, 2012||2 attempts remaining|
|Took the exam 4 times prior to January 1, 2012||2 attempts remaining|
|Took the exam 5+ times prior to January 1, 2012||2 attempts remaining|
|All attempts after January 1, 2012 will eat into your remaining attempts.|
In addition, individuals may attempt the exam a maximum of three times within a 24 month period. If an individual attempts the exam on three successive administrations, a one year sit-out period is required before registering for another attempt.

What Professionals Say About Dalton
"I recommend Dalton's CFP study program to anyone who is planning to sit for the test. It is thorough, well guided, and offers many resources for individual support. I can honestly say that I went into the exam KNOWING that I was going to pass."
"It came down to the enrollment advisor's responsiveness in addressing my questions/concerns as primary and then the ability to be flexible with online courses and working through the coursework. Absolutely would recommend Dalton! After having taken the exam (and passed!) last week, I appreciate Dalton's questions even more as they were more realistic to what I saw on the exam. Thank you! Keep up the good work!"
"Combined with hard work and dedication, Dalton Education made sure I had what was needed in order to succeed. Without their experience, diligence, and structure, I would have spent more time worrying about what to study and when rather than putting in the hours needed to pass. Dalton knows how to get it done the first time around!"
"I have thoroughly enjoyed the Dalton Education CFP study program. I completed the 10 week review for the exam, including a 4 day live review. I successfully passed the CFP exam and I owe my success to Dalton and their incredible team of instructors. The Dalton materials, coursework, virtual classroom and schedule are not only intuitive and user friendly for a working mother, but they are top notch. I felt prepared for the exam, and after passing the exam I realized how Dalton had not only prepared me for everything but they over prepared me. I have a deep understanding for financial planning, and I look forward to taking my career to the next level. Thank you Dalton! A huge shout out to a team of highly intelligent and helpful instructors!"
"Dalton provided me the materials, resources, and structure that I needed to complete my certification. From the beginning, I greatly appreciated a detailed schedule for staying on track with the material while allowing you the flexibility between deadlines to manage your work and personal life alongside my certification work. It helped me plan study time accordingly and gave me a practical benchmark for preparation time. That said, each professor teaching the material stood out to me whether it was because of their experience with the CFP exam, pedigree, and/or knowledge and presentation of the material."
"What I love about the CFP course through Dalton is the flexibility. I have co-workers who are taking the program through other providers and they are stuck all day on a Saturday reviewing and taking tests – not for me. Also, the exam prep materials are amazing! I love the flash cards and the Quick Sheets. The instructors are amazing and I have felt very supported along the way. I would definitely recommend Dalton to others."
