Taking the Course

The Chartered Financial Divorce Specialists (CFDS) course is offered through the Internet for distance learning (self-study) with registration at any time and also in selected locations each year for those wishing to take the training in a class room setting.

The material is the same for both options and focuses on all financial aspects associated with the cohabitation, separation or divorce process, including but not limited to the determination of assets and liabilities, support obligations, property division, pension evaluation, taxation implications, insurance requirements, cash flow, net worth outcomes and budgeting.

For self-study exams are on-line and a case study is submitted for final evaluation as part of module four of the course.  For in-class students the case study is completed on the final (third day) of the course. Please note, in order to enroll in the CFDS training you must hold a financial planning designation that is eligible as a prerequisite for this complex area of practice. For more information please go to the FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) section of this site.
