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.
