Principles for an alternative solution

Principles for an Alternative Solution

  • Public accountability of proctors by publishing who no longer is able to proctor

  • Much more auditing by the provider of the test administration sites

  • Annual witnessing of two test sites by ANSI in addition to the regular on-site visits

  • More CFP Standards as to what constitutes an acceptable test site and the acceptable environmental conditions

  • Establishing a registry of “proctors” who have passed an acceptable CFP training program provided by the certification agencies
