Recognition of Prior Learning

As a CFE applicant, you can earn up to 500 credits for your experience as a franchisor, franchisee or other professional including career/work experience and/or studies. 

The ICFE Board does not 'grandfather' applicants with experience and formal professional qualifications.

The maximum amount of CFE credits allowed toward the total 3500 credits is 500 for experience. The balance of the 2500 education credits and 500 participation credits must be acquired through successful completion of CFE approved courses and by participating in approved FCA events and activities. (See Program Structure)

  • 15% of the total credits are based on experience
  • 15% from participation in FCA approved events and activities
  • 70% is based on earning education credits.

The CFETM is not a credential based entirely on experience. It is weighted heavily toward continuing education.
