I know I am new here, and I am still trying to get familiar with the place. However, I have a couple of questions and a suggestion. I came here because I want to get my CFP permit. As a newbie, I am confused on the process. I know my questions are probably answered somewhere buried in this forum. It might be helpful for someone to create a sticky that always stays at the top of the list that contains basic information about the process of obtaining a CFP permit. I have questions such as how much does it cost? How long does it take? What are the basic requirements? How much training is involved? Where are the classes held? Who can be a trainer? What forms have to be filled out? Etc. Thank you for your warm welcome and responses.
