I realize there are myriad junk designations out there, but I came across this the other day and wondered it if might have “niche” potential.https://www.institutedfa.com/
I know at least one person pursuing it. I have heard different opinions from two divorce attorneys. One liked the designation the other could care less.
As far as whether or not it’s a junk designation, my initial impression is that it’s not. It has four modules with a two-hour test at the end of each one and a comprehensive case study at the end that is graded for pass/fail (not simply completion).In addition, completion gives you 25 hours of CPE (the CFP gets you 40 in comparison). I'm not here to endorse or disclaim the designation, but it's far from some of the complete shit designations I've seen like the CSA.
