Many CFRE candidates find that participating in a study group is a helpful way to prepare for the CFRE exam.  As a service to CFRE candidates, CFRE International is pleased to host the following searchable list of study groups.  CFRE International has not reviewed the materials or methods used in these study groups, and the presence of a study group on this list does not constitute an endorsement by CFRE International.

To have your study group posted here, send an e-mail to CFRE International containing the name of the sponsoring organisation, the location of the study group, the start and end dates of the study group, the name of the contact person for the study group, and the e-mail of the contact person.  By providing this information to CFRE International, you are agreeing to all this information being published on the CFRE International website and other CFRE International publications.
