The Council on Financial Education (“CFEA”) was created in 2010 with the mission to promote the effective delivery of consumer financial products, services and education through the establishment of business, education and counseling standards, and the accreditation of Organizations under these standards.
The Institute for Financial Literacy, a non-profit financial literacy organization headquartered in South Portland, Maine, created CFEA to help high quality financial education providers improve their existing programs and distinguish themselves as effective educators that provide measurable results to their clients.
CFEA provides a reliable, consistent framework with which financial educators and counselors can measure their effectiveness, gather feedback and use these measurements and feedback to continuously improve their programs, services and results. CFEA also provides a recognizable mark of quality for those seeking effective financial education and counseling services. Learn more about the Accreditation Process now!
