Foran Case Study Seminar for CFP® Candidates

Foran Class Code: CFPC1

Foran’s 1-day Case Study workshop for CFP Candidates focuses on application, how to apply the technical skills and knowledge.

Registration in a current Foran 5-day seminar for the CFP exam is a prerequisite for this workshop.

The workshop will assist Candidates with various methods for approaching case study exams.


Students will be given an opportunity to review several case studies during the course of the day, followed by a thorough discussion of each one.

The instructors will highlight how to recognize important information and disregard irrelevant information in the cases. Time management techniques and methods for recognizing distracters will be discussed.

This workshop provides students with an excellent opportunity to integrate knowledge gained through through the 5-day seminars and consolidate their learning.

New registrations for fall will be accepted through the website after restrictions have been lifted.

To be fair to all students registrations are accepted on a first-in-first-confirmed basis.

  • After what I thought was an amazing 1st week of content, I was pleased that the format of the one-day session challenged all aspects of the previous week. I was somewhat concerned that I would not be in a position to apply my learnings with such a quick turn around, but the brain is pretty amazing! I would strongly Toronto, November 2017

  • Time well spent. Each scenario/case study provides an opportunity to think and remember. Great memory work for the exam. Open discussions improve reasoning skills and Doug is very patient so one feels comfortable asking questions. The best part was going through each option with explanations for each and every answer. Great for memory! November 18, 2013

  • The Foran Case Study Seminar instilled confidence in me to master the most feared portion of the CFP exam. By attending this workshop, not only did I pass the November 2009 examination on my first attempt, but I also qualified to be on the President’s List. The instructors at Foran are truly exceptional in the area of financial planning and offer a plethora of experience to the students who attend."
