Applying For Your FP&A Exam Made Easy
Share this article:
There are several ways to enroll in the FP&A Certification Program: online or by mail or fax. Whichever you choose, you’ll need to make sure to pay in full at the same time as applying - your application cannot be processed unless you’ve paid.
If sending by mail or fax, make sure the postmark or time stamp is dated before the application deadline – otherwise your application will be deferred to the next testing window.
Once your application is approved, AFP will email you an Authorization-To-Test, otherwise known as an ATT, telling you everything you need to schedule the next step.
If you registered for a future window, you won’t get your ATT until the current window is over.
If four weeks pass and you still didn’t receive anything, you can follow up by calling +1 301 907 2862.
Once you’ve registered for a testing window, it’s time to schedule your exams and take them – if you don’t, you will lose your exam fee and go through the re-exam registration process that includes a $300 fee. So if you feel like you want to move to the next testing window, now is also the time to request a transfer or deferral. Check out www.FPACert.org/Rules for how to do this.
Take a look at your ATT and make sure your first and last names match exactly those on your ID. If you find any difference, contact AFP before you make your test appointment. Check out www.FPACert.org/Rules if you’re in doubt.
Test appointments fill up quickly, so as soon as you get your ATT we advise you to book yours immediately either online at www.pearsonvue.com/AFP or by calling Pearson VUE’s registration center at +1.866.837.8287. You have more than 5,000 Pearson VUE testing centers to choose from at which you can take your test.
If you have any documented visual, physical, hearing or learning disability that you think requires special testing arrangements, you should submit your details to AFP within 24 hours prior to the exam. They will need to see written documentation from your doctor or a qualified medical professional who has treated you for your disability. Your request will be considered to ensure a sense of fairness with other candidates. There is no charge for making any special testing arrangements.
As soon as the exam is over you’ll get a print-out of your results and whether you passed or failed. You’ll only know your actual score if you failed, along with your performance diagnostics by knowledge domain.
The above is a brief guide. If you have any more questions or need any assistance, don’t hesitate to contact Morgan, we’ll be happy to guide you every step of the way.
