Participation in the AFP CFRE Review 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 Review 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 the review 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.
