Certified Retirement Plan Fiduciary™ Designation 

The Certified Retirement Plan Fiduciary™ program provides consistent, regimented, and non-biased training to ensure public retirement system fiduciaries have the knowledge to confidently address the challenges they face. Recently updated to address the six educational areas listed in the Georgia Code, participants gain an understanding of topics related to the public retirement system industry. 

The CRPF™ curriculum is comprised of Basic and Advanced Courses. To enroll in the Advanced Course, a participant must have successfully completed and passed (70% or greater) the Basic Course examination in the last two (2) years. Upon the successful completion of their Advanced Course exam, a participant is designated as a Certified Retirement Plan Fiduciary™. CRPF™ certification runs from April 1st to March 31st, and designees must complete eight (8) GAPPT Continuing Education Credits (CECs) annually to maintain their certification. CECs can be earned by attending the Continuing Education Course at the Trustee School, sessions at the Annual Conference, or through the Association's online education platform.
