GAFM ® Recognizes Double Accredited Education and Exams Worldwide
by recognizing the accreditation agencies – AND GAFM ® is the First to Do So in the
The GAFM ® Board of Standards and Certification Accreditation Council is independent
of any training or educational institution and has been independent from inception. GAFM accredits training
programs as qualified education for our certifications.
As you know, many other organizations attempt to set up their own
college, universities or training programs that lead to their own certification in the USA. GAFM is the first
organization in the world to enter joint education recognition agreements with the AACSB and ACBSP which includes
the 1000+ top ACCREDITED business schools worldwide that are recognized by the department of education. GAFM
also recognizes ISO standards for training and quality.
From a legal standpoint, you must realize that GAFM has recognized (in
mutual and legal agreements) 1000+ + business schools and graduate law schools worldwide through agreements with
the AACSB and ACBSP and ABA Law Schools. Thus, we have accredited and sanctioned over 1000+ + colleges and
universities that provide government approved or sanctioned education.
So, GAFM ® accepts successfully completed credits and degrees completed
from these top 1000 business schools, MBA programs, and law schools worldwide. It is an unprecedented move by GAFM
that has NEVER been achieved by ANY organization worldwide. GAFM also accredits and approves qualified ABA
Accredited Law School Courses and degrees that lead to certification.

*Candidates at a young age should realize that they can: Apply for
admission to an accredited program and college, earn acceptance to an accredited program, excel in a focus area,
pass all of the course exams from accredited programs, and then become eligible for board certification if they
meet the other requirements such as experience, ethics and continuing education. It can be a 4-7 year certification
process depending on if you go into a masters program, but our Board of Standards has the most respected path and
method of certification which cooperates directly with government recognized schools.
NOTE on designations and credentials:
GAFM ® mandates that all members subject to US Jurisdiction abide
by the rules and regulations of the SEC, NASD and local, state and federal regulators and laws. Any member who uses
an GAFM designation or board certification should understand that policy and regulation differs from broker-dealer
to broker dealer and possibly from state to state thus reducing the ability to use any or all designations. All
members that advise clients on investments or insurance products are encouraged to earn and hold an investment
advisors license, series 65, 66 or RIA registration or licenses for the sale of insurance products. Moreover, any
GAFM member should know that they may be subject to the rules of suitability, client objectives, diversification of
client assets, to NOT use risky investments, anti- fraud, rules of representation, the way you hold yourself out to
clients & prudent investing for any client who may be nearing retirement or has fixed income needs.
Regulation and Licenses
For anyone who holds themselves out as an Analyst and provides analysis
on investments, you must be familiar with all rules under the SEC and NASD. Please review this one also
http://www.sec.gov/divisions/marketreg/mregacfaq0803.htm#parta as you may be subject to this rule. As
per FINRA and SEC rules, US citizens may also be required to pass exams or be approved for various types of
activities . Consult your lawyer or state securities agency, banking government agencies, or the SEC, CFPB,
FIDC, or FINRA directly to find out what you need to do to be in compliance.
