By using the CFP marks, an individual is holding out his or her financial planning services to the public as meeting CFP certification standards.

FPSC Level 1 certificants are required to attest to the same standard of care, ethics and loyalty as a CFP professional and have a Continuing Education requirement in order to maintain their competence. Attainment of FPSC Level 1 Certification is also confirmation of readiness to move forward on the path to CFP certification.
