Become a Certified Self Funding Specialist®!
Learn Everything You Need to Know Online


Now you can earn insurance and health Continuing Education credits and obtain a Certified Self Funding Specialist® (CSFS®) designation online through the Health Care Administrators Association (HCAA).   Encompassing over 1000 total pages of training content, the seven modules of the CSFS® certification provide a comprehensive and unmatched understanding of the self-funded benefit model.

HCAA has developed a new, exciting training and certification program. The courses and certification are focused on self funding benefit and its associated ERISA framework. The seven modules, each qualifying for Continuing Education credits, are an online certification program which when successfully completed culminates in the award of the Certified Self Funding Specialist® (CSFS®) designation.

The required coursework to obtain the CSFS® certification is brought to you in partnership with the International Foundation of Employee Benefit Plans (IFEBP), and is delivered online through WebCE, a nationwide leader in continuing education. To earn the CSFS® professional designation, you must successfully complete all seven online course modules. However, individual classes are also offered without certification after taking the introductory course.

You can view the courses online and print the material from your browser. Best of all, you can study at your own pace, and then complete your final exam for each course online.
