Group Member Discount

The Institute of Financial Operations group members receive a waiver of the exam application fee.

Exam Cancellation

Registrants who cancel their exam reservation date up to 72 hours before the original reserved exam date may receive a refund for the exam registration fee minus the exam cancellation fee.  Cancellation requests cannot be honored within 72 hours of the reserved exam date.  Registrants who "no-show" for their exam will forfeit their exam and application fee.

Exam Rescheduling

Registrants may reschedule their exam date to another day within the same exam window up to 72 hours before the original reserved exam date at no charge.  The Institutes' members who wish to reschedule their exam date to another exam window may do so at no charge up to 72 hours before the original reserved exam date.  Non-members will be required to pay an exam rescheduling fee to The Institute.  Registrants may reschedule their exam date to another window only once; subsequent requests will be denied and will require the full exam fee.

*Please refer to the candidate handbooks for additional information about exam cancellation and rescheduling.


Exam Re-Testing

Candidates who do not pass the exam may re-test during the next test window (approximately six months), or any subsequent exam window. Full exam fees will be required (this includes both the application fee and the exam fee). There is no limit on the number of times a candidate may re-test.

Recertification

The initial recertification will be due the first June 30th following two years after originally passing the exam.  Subsequent recertification will be due every two years on June 30th of the reporting year. Recertification requirements along with the renewal fee must be received by the due date or a late recertification fee will apply. Prior to the recertification due date, notification letters are sent to all certificants who are scheduled to report in that year. This reminder will advise certificants of their expected standing at the two year mark.

*Please refer to the candidate handbooks for additional information about recertification requirements.

Revocation/Reinstatement

The Institutes' Certification Council has the power to deny, suspend, refuse renewal, or revoke certification for anyone who is found guilty of violating the Code of Ethics, the qualification requirements, or the recertification requirements.

AP professionals may be considered for reinstatement of their designation by submitting a request in writing to The Institutes' Certification Council within 30 days of revocation.  If a reinstatement request is approved, the individual will be required to pay a reinstatement fee and agree to comply with all recertification requirements.

*Please refer to the candidate handbooks for additional information about revocation and reinstatement.

Late Recertification

Certificants who do not meet the recertification requirements by the appropriate due date may retain certification if a late recertification fee accompanies all other recertification requirements within 90 days past the due date. If payment is not made within this time frame, the certification will be inactivated.

*Please refer to the candidate handbooks for additional information about late recertification requirements.

Inactivation/Reactivation

If recertification requirements and appropriate payment are not made within the three month time frame following the recertification due date, the certificant's designation will be inactivated.

AP professionals may be considered for reactivation of their designation by submitting a request in writing within 90 days of inactivation. If the request is approved, the individual will be required to pay a reactivation fee and agree to comply with all recertification requirements.

*Please refer to the candidate handbooks for additional information about inactivation and reactivation policies.
