Certification Extension Program Extended!

February 28, 2013 Certification

Effective March 1, 2013

On September 1, 2002, the International Function Point Users Group (IFPUG) Board of Directors approved the Certified Function Point Specialist (CFPS) Certification Extension Program (CEP). The CFPS CEP is an activity driven process by which the CFPS designation could be extended without the need of an examination. This process allows an individual to earn credits toward extension of that person’s current CFPS designation. Since the implementation of the program, new activities have been added and existing activities modified to better meet the needs of IFPUG’s large international CFPS community. This year the program has been expanded to include credit for distance learning of IFPUG sponsored FP Counting Workshops. Workshops that are pre-approved for credit can be found on the CFPS Certification Extension Program page on the IFPUG Website and the CFPS Certification Extension Program document. The program takes effect on March 1, 2013.
