The US-based Certified Financial Planner Board of Standards is developing an online course for prospective CFPs in collaboration with the University of Illinois.
The “massive open online course” will be launched in 2014 focusing on introductory studies in personal finance and vocational information about becoming a CFP.
More broadly, the board reports it is seeing increasing interest in financial planner studies from universities and colleges.
"We're seeing significant growth and we're still seeing significant diversity in our programs," says Charles Chaffin, the CFP Board's director of academic programs and initiatives.
