Become an Accredited Financial Counselor® (AFC®)

Because the best financial advice considers more than just dollars and cents.

AFC® certification helps you better understand how diverse backgrounds, perspectives, and experiences impact your clients’ money behaviors. The AFC also raises your confidence and credibility with your clients, and is accredited through The National Commission for Certifying Agencies (NCCA).  

Essential Education

At AFCPE we recognize that budgets and resources might be limited, but your commitment to helping people achieve lasting financial well-being is not. 

Which is why we offer Essentials Courses! Essentials Courses are online and self-paced to meet you where you are – giving you the tools and resources to make a lasting impact in the lives of those you serve.
