The Association for Financial Professionals has introduced a global credential for corporate financial planning and analysis professionals.

The new Certified Corporate Financial Planning & Analysis Professional credential is aimed at FP&A professionals who have responsibility for budgeting and forecasting, data analysis and optimizing strategic business plans.  To earn the FP&A credential, candidates must pass a two-part examination, meet education and experience requirements and agree to abide by the AFP Standards of Ethical Conduct. The first part of the exam tests candidates' ability to gather, interpret and communicate financial information. The second part tests their ability to analyze financial information, build financial projections and use technology and software. Over 5,000 testing centers operated by PearsonVUE across the globe will offer the proctored computer-based FP&A certification exams.
