Policy on Certification Programme Fees

All fees for initial certification, re-examination and recertification must be paid at the time of application via our secure online payment system built into the application form or by check. All fees are payable in US Dollars. Cheques or money order must be payable to CFRE International.

Individuals who are current members of any of the current Participating Organisations in good standing may apply to CFRE International at the reduced fee, as a benefit of the professional association’s participation with CFRE International.

Membership affiliation must be indicated on the application form and will be verified. Individuals who are not members of one of the Participating Organisations or are unaffiliated at this time must pay the non-member rate.

Applications are not reviewed until all fees are paid.
