The Mentor Program was created to assist candidates preparing to take the CLFP Exam. The Program is voluntary and is offered at no additional cost to the candidate.
A candidate will be assigned a Mentor upon request following formal application and receipt of fee for the CLFP Exam. Candidates are matched with a mentor who is knowledgeable in areas of the Body of Knowledge of interest to the candidate. Or, the candidate may request a specific individual.
All Mentors hold the CLFP designation and will answer questions about the conduct of the exam, assist the candidate in understanding and interpreting areas of the Body of Knowledge, and generally provide intellectual, experiential and moral support.
Mentors are not instructors or tutors. The candidate is expected to learn the required material on his or her own by studying written materials, by taking available industry courses, and through industry work experience. Mentors will provide clarification and interpretation for subjects the candidate has already studied. For instance, the Mentor will clarify Present Value Theory, but will not teach the Theory.

The CLP Foundation is looking for Mentors. The number of applicants for certification is growing each day and has focused attention on the need for CLFP Mentors.
Are you a CLFP in Good Standing?
All Mentors must hold the CLFP designation In Good Standing and will answer questions about the conduct of the exam, assist the candidate in understanding and interpreting areas of the Body of Knowledge and provide intellectual, experiential and moral support. By becoming a Mentor you will help the CLFP Candidate succeed and brighten the future of your industry. Rest assured, when you serve as a mentor you enrich yourself as much as you do the CLFP candidate. Mentoring is not only a great way to get a tune-up and make ongoing contributions to the industry (and qualifies toward recertification), but mentoring leads to new experiences, new connections, new insights and new satisfactions.
