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. Checks or money orders must be payable to CFRE International.

Individuals who are current members of any of the current Participating Organizations 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 and will be verified. Individuals who are not members of one of the Participating Organizations or are unaffiliated at this time must pay the non-member rate.
