LACP Certification

The NAIFA Life and Annuity Certified Professional (LACP) certification serves consumers by recognizing financial professionals with a mark of distinction for their product knowledge, consultative sales process and compliance with ethical, legal, and regulatory requirements. LACP practitioners are held to a standard of excellence that defines and differentiates them from their peers and the clients they serve.

The NAIFA LACP certification program is governed by the NAIFA Certification Commission which functions as an independent certifying body. To become an LACP, practitioners must meet the eligibility criteria and successfully complete the LACP examination. The NAIFA Certification Commission and its staff are solely responsible for the policies and administration of the NAIFA LACP Certification program including defining its purpose, qualification and re-certification requirements; exam application components and deadlines; exam development, delivery,  administration, fees, testing sites and accommodations; retesting policy for failing candidates; non-discrimination and fairness policy; policy relating to reconsideration of adverse certification decisions; disciplinary standards and procedures; and issuance of a program annual report.
