Professional Recertification

Since our founding in 1927, The American College of Financial Services has been committed to serving the public through increasing the knowledge and professionalism of financial advisors. As one part of that commitment, every designee of The College agrees to adhere to our Code of Ethics, which includes a professional pledge and eight canons that address ongoing education and ethical standards.

We believe individuals who use our designations to represent their expertise to consumers have an obligation to the public to practice ethically and engage in ongoing professional education, something that is particularly important in today’s environment of complex products and regulations.

Professional recertification serves as a way for designees of The College to maintain their designations through ethical oversight and continuing education (CE).
