Welcome to the Certificate in Financial Planning Programs offered through Emory University - Continuing Education, in conjunction with Dalton Education, a leading provider of financial planning education materials.

Both of these programs are designed to fulfill the education requirement to sit for the CFP® Certification Examination. Whatever your learning style, we have the perfect program for you.
