agree with your point, CF should be added in the syllabus, but not FAP.

2) FAP exposes candidates to a wide-array of areas. namely health, life, pension & p&c. i dont see how this 'rabbit trail' would better develop the RM/Investment skill set for CERA designation holder.

I like the addition of corp. finance VEE, which i suppose is a given. but really dont like FAP being added (jmho).

maybe it's a matter of money... MLC ($300) vs. FAP ($2100+)?

The CERA isn't specifically a life insurance designation... so why should we have to take MLC to be a CERA?
