Initial program cost is $1500 for a two-year license to access the coursework and take the final exam. There will be a $50 administrative fee annually to renew the designation and continuing education requirements.
The designations are not mutually exclusive. While some of the topics covered are also covered in Bond School, the CGIP program offers all new courses specifically tailored for public sector professionals. CFIP grads may be able to breeze through some of the coursework, minimizing the hours needed to prepare for the comprehensive exam, but our guess is it will be an enjoyable part of your journey to always be learning. For those of you needing annual CPE credits, you will also be able to earn additional credits (# of credits TBD). We are happy to discuss which designation, or whether both, is most suitable for you depending on your career goals.
If you are a CFIP designation holder and continuing member at Fixed Income Academy, you are eligible to register in the CGIP program at the reduced rate of $1000. To inquire about your current enrollment/status with FIA call 800-243-5097 or email email@example.com.
