Calling all CFRE future candidates!

If you are thinking about writing your CFRE in the next 12 months, you may want to consider joining a study group.  Becoming CFRE-certified increases credibility, improves career opportunities, develops skills and knowledge, demonstrates commitment and enhances professional image.  All the upcoming application and testing dates are listed at the bottom of this message but for more information on the application process, testing and just general information about obtaining your CFRE, you can visit

We have had a bit of interest in a study group for this winter. A study group usually meets for anywhere between 6 and 12 weeks, follows the CFRE study manual and is lead week-by-week by the group members.  It is mandatory that all study group participants have a copy of the most recent CFRE study manual.  The group will either meet in person around dinner hours and all meetings will be potluck OR the group may want to consider a study buddy concept.  All options for study group will be discussed in the first meeting which takes place by conference call.  This gives you an opportunity to discuss, with other interested candidates, the kind of study group that the group thinks will work best and the best days and times for the group.  Once this conference call takes place, then people decide if they can make the commitment.  Please consider at least joining the conference call to see if this concept might work for you.  Our last 2 study groups have had 100% success rate in writing their exam.

The study group sessions will run from the end of February until the end of April/early May.

The conference call to discuss format for the Winter 20145 study group and setting dates will be held on February 17 from 12:30 to 1:00 pm.  Please RSVP to join the conference call and then the phone details will be sent to all those who RSVP by Feb 13.  RSVPs are to be sent to Darlene Bennett-Howes at  If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask.
