Coronavirus forces CFP exam sites to close
March 18, 2020 by Ann Marsh
Steps to arrest the rise of the coronavirus are postponing some financial planners’ career milestones.
CFP exam sites are shutting down midway through the day on March 17 — right in the middle of two rounds of scheduled test periods. The move, combined with selective closures on Monday, affects more than 100 people who were scheduled to sit for exams to earn the CFP marks, the industry’s most popular professional designation. It also potentially puts a crimp in the growth of certified financial planners.
