The Advisory Advantage: Help Other Professionals Get CHAE or CHTP Certified

Written By: Robin Bogdon, HFTP certification manager

Your experience can make a difference! If you are an active CHAE or CHTP designee, you can apply to become an advisor to other professionals seeking to achieve their own HFTP certification designation.

HFTP has just launched its new Certification Advisory Program (CAP), designed to assist CHAE and CHTP certification applicants — who have indicated participation in CAP on their respective certification exam application — by assigning them an experienced advisor. The advisor will help and support the candidate in one-to-one interactions, giving them a supplemental review to help with the certification exams.

Approved CAP advisors can earn HFTP education credits to help them meet their designation maintenance requirements.

HFTP is now looking for experienced CHAE/CHTP designee advisors.

What does it take to be a CAP Advisor?

To qualify, you must:

  • Be an active HFTP member and also have active designee (CHAE or CHTP) status.
  • Serve a one year commitment and cannot serve consecutive years.
  • Assist one candidate per six month period, unless additional candidates are approved by the advisory council.
  • Your monthly commitment will be a minimum of two hours; via conference call, email and/or face-to-face, if possible.

How can you apply to become an advisor?

  • You must submit the CAP program application.
  • Once your application is submitted, there is an approval process. Applicants will be notified after the approval review is complete.
  • Advisors will be given tools and resources to assist in their training, before being matched with a candidate.

If you are interested in becoming an advisor, please submit the CAP application today!
