  • Exam registrations cannot be transferred to other individuals. 
  • Retakes and deferrals are not available for Candidates who are unable to sit for their FDP exam due to late receipt of study materials, failure to secure an exam appointment at either a physical or remote location or lack of availability of a valid visa or passport.
  • Refunds - Enrollment fees are non-refundable. The FDP Institute will grant refunds of exam registration fees only, net of any applicable fees if refunded via bank wire, if the individual cancels the registration within 14 days of the date of the purchase.  To cancel a registration and apply for a refund of the exam registration fee, the individual must email the FDP Institute at
