This one-day CFRE Refresher Course focuses on both

• refreshing the fundraising knowledge, a professional already has

• identifying and helping to fill in gaps in fundraising knowledge.

So, this Course is a most important step in the process of preparing for the CFRE Exam. However – avoid relying solely on this Course and this manual during your exam preparation! Successful candidates often participate in follow up study groups and spend time on their own studying for the exam.

CFRE International provides a number of excellent resources, including a candidate handbook, the test-content outline, and a list of reading resources (also provided as handouts as a part of the Refresher Course), available at www.cfre.org/resources/handbooks.

Hurry now! Registration will close one month prior to the course date and seating is limited.



A practice exam is also available on a subscription basis for periods of either 30 or 90 days: www.cfre.org/practice-exam. The practice exam does not provide the answers to the exam questions one will face; rather, it primarily helps one understand how the questions are asked and the degree of difficulty involved. We encourage participants to take advantage of these additional resources!

Participation in the AFP CFRE Refresher Course may assist you in learning or reviewing concepts covered on the Certified Fundraising Executive (CFRE) examination as detailed on the Test Content Outline provided by CFRE International. However, the AFP CFRE Refresher Course is not designed specifically as a prep course for the exam. It is designed to provide a review of concepts one should know at the five-year experience level. AFP highly recommends that this refresher course be just one of the resources you use in preparing to take the CFRE exam. Your study should also include reading books that appear on the CFRE Resource Reading List.
