Deliver Complete Education for FP Canada™ Certifications

Post-secondary institutions who are approved to provide core and advanced education are now eligible to apply for FP Canada’s new Professional Education Accreditation Program.

With this program, your institution can deliver all the technical and professional education required for certifications granted and overseen by FP Canada as part of your approved undergraduate programs.


Ensure your Graduates are Job Ready
