Have you ever thought about taking the CPFO exam? Here’s your chance to take a review course in preparation for the Governmental Accounting, Auditing and Financial Reporting exam. VGFOA is offering this review course to encourage individuals to become Certified Public Finance Officers (CPFO) and continue their professional development in government finance.
To incentivize individuals to take the CPFO exam, VGFOA will pay 50% of the exam fee ($72.50). If this is your first examination in the CPFO program, the initiation fee of $150 will also be covered. The exam must be taken within 6 months.
The CPFO is a valuable, objective credential that verifies a specified level of knowledge, skills, and abilities in government finance. The designation prepares individuals for financial leadership positions in state and local government by enhancing fundamental skills and increasing knowledge of best practices and the latest trends in the governmental financial arenas.
