Though coming from a non-financial background, I wanted to get insights into the financial planning area. This course has been truly fantastic and has lived up to my expectations. The lecturers are very professional, thorough and have shared valuable experience from their industry. The FP staff is very supportive and helpful throughout the course duration. I would recommend Module 1 of the CFP program for every working professional irrespective of the industry or background.

Everyone needs to have basic financial knowledge. The Module 1 lectures have given me a good foundation on financial topics and products. I encourage everyone to take this module to empower themselves.

The CFP® Certification Program is a must for all professionals who want to kick start their careers in the financial services industry. I can say that being one of the pioneer graduates of this program, FP as the leading education provider of the CFP® program, has helped me achieved my CFP® status.
Mr Tan Hwee Heng / CFP® /
My peers are surprised that I managed to complete my CFP® qualification in one go, and the credit must go to FP. I passed all my exams in a single attempt because of the excellent lecturers at FP who makes the most comprehensive topics so lively and enjoyable. It was such a pleasant and awesome study experience!

My lecturer has been a really detailed lecturer, pointing out and emphasizing the salient points. He does have a sense of humour, which is vital for classes like these. It also means that I never fall asleep when he teaches. His passion to groom future planners & financially savvy people is obvious, and I am very glad to have a lecturer as such. The execution of the topics reflects it not only as a figures and academic subject, but as a real life checklist of things we need to know.
"I feel an important topic on Financial Management is missed out in today's formal education curriculum that covers Language, Math, Science, Home Economics and Social Studies etc. Many people complete their formal education without learning some practical skills on how to manage their money or are equipped with skills like:
- How to work out a budget
- How to evaluate and select appropriate insurance coverage for themselves
- How to save and invest their money
- How to prepare for retirement
- Calculating the true cost of a major investment (purchase a car, a house etc)
The skill sets and information needed to answer the above questions are actually covered in the CFP® Module 1. It gives all students a broad-based understanding of how various financial instruments and markets work, how to evaluate between different investment or loan options, a good overview of the various types of insurance and their purposes etc.
Therefore, I would highly recommend this course to anyone who would want to invest in his or her financial future.
