The International Association of Registered Financial Consultants (IARFC) is currently offering a discount for those who wish to apply and take the exam for the Master Registered Financial Consultant (MRFC) designation. For a limited time, the exam fee is discounted to $150 – a 50% reduction of the regular $300 price (excludes application fee).
The candidate must first meet the requirements in the areas of experience, education, licensing, conduct and ethics. After the application process is approved, exam times are scheduled with the testing company. The exam follows a set of guidelines put forth in the MRFC Blueprint Exam Content – based on survey answers describing the role and responsibilities of the practicing financial consultant.
The format is a multiple choice, computer based exam administered under proctored testing conditions at approved testing centers. It consists of 125 four-part multiple choice items and has a three hour time limit. Candidates who receive a passing score on the exam earn the right to publicize and brand this prestigious designation. While the MRFC designation may be displayed it is still going through the application process with the NCCA for full accreditation status.
Sitting for the exam and obtaining the MRFC designation is meaningful recognition to all aspects of the financial consultant’s career.
