IFPUG Board of Directors Approves Two New Certifications

March 27, 2012 Certification

The IFPUG Board of Directors recently approved two new certifications at their annual board meeting held in Orlando, FL in early March.

Certified Function Point Practitioner (CFPP)

  • CFPP – minimum test part scores of 70/70/70 and an overall scored of 80, effective April 1, 2012. Reviews and extensions are not included in this certification. This is intended to be a stepping stone to CFPS.
  • Valid for three years.
  • CFPP holders receive electronic certificates only.

Certified Function Point Specialist – Fellow

  • The certification designation of CFPS Fellow is for members who have 20 years of continuous certification with a lapse not greater than six months, beginning July 1, 2012. This designation will have no charge.
  • Once achieved, CFPS Fellow allows the individual to retain their certification without re-examination as long as they maintain their membership in IFPUG.
