The Certification Advisory Program is a program designed to assist CHAE and CHTP certification applicants in achieving their HFTP certification designation.

The Certification Advisory Program brings together both candidates and advisors, who will help and support candidates in one-to-one interactions, as a supplemental review option for the certification exams.

*Exam Applicants: Please be sure to designate on the application if you wish to participate in the CAP program.

CAP Testimonials

"I owe a portion of my success in attaining my CHAE designation to the CAP program! I live in a city without an active HFTP Chapter which made finding someone who is also seeking or have attained the designation much more difficult. Through the CAP program, I was matched with a mentor who served as a resource, a sounding board and researcher, helping me to frame the study material within my day to day job functions and duties. This made a world of difference and helped me work through the exam questions."


Director of Finance

"I have been trying to achieve the CHAE designation for several years. I studied and studied and a few of the sections I just couldn’t get through. I worked with a mentor for a few months who helped me realize that I knew the material, I just needed help building my confidence and being held accountable for the knowledge that I didn’t use every day.  I don’t think I would have made it through the last few sections without this program."
