How to obtain CFS?

You collect CFS points by actively participating in the semester program of your stock exchange association. Your board members will note your progress in further education in our member database.

The number of CFS points of a further training offer of BVH or a partner is based on the intensity and complexity of the offer. Educational offers of our stock exchange associations are credited per time hour in a simplified way. Accreditation in the BVH Education Division, however, also offers the possibility of more CFS points in case of higher complexity.

You can find an overview of the distribution of points in the CFS brochure, which is available for download here.

Insights into the CFS

Within the BVH Academy, the intranet of the BVH, a member can access the educational contents of the CFS. The educational content provided is offered locally by the regional member association or online via webinar. In the personal profile of each member the progress of further education is recorded. Here, the executive boards of the stock exchange associations note in which educational offers and with what success the member has participated. The further education opportunities offered by each of the stock exchange associations are also taken into account.

Implementation of the CFS

IT structure

Voluntary further training measures are recorded through the maintenance of the member database by the executive boards of the regional associations. In the personal profile of each member, the history of the further training measures completed can be called up, as well as the CFS certificate if the required number of points has been achieved.

Strategy

The CFS serves the strategic consolidation of the BVH's further education offer, the expansion of the offer by practical knowledge of our partners and the recognition of educational work on a regional level.

Quality assurance

The quality of the continuing education content is ensured by partners from practice and the academic environment. An ethical guideline from the set of rules and regulations and plausibility checks ensure that no one obtains the CFS unjustly.
