The CLFP Exam

The CLFP Exam is an eight-hour test featuring various question formats including multiple choice, essay, true/false, etc.  The Exam is cumulative and a score of 75% is needed to pass.  If 75% is not obtained, the individual sections are taken into consideration and as long as the person has scored at least a 75% in two of the four sections, only the sections that the person did not pass would need to be taken again.  If the person scored a 75% or above in only one section, the entire Exam would need to be retaken.
