The Certified Professional Foreaster (CPF) certification is essential for professionals involved in the areas of supply side business forecasting. Candidates must pass 3 exams in order to earn the CPF designation. The major topics covered by the 3 exams include:

TIME-SERIES MODELS
FORECAST ACCURACY
BASIC KNOWLEDGE OF MS-EXCEL

Module 2:

As stated by IBF, the candidate should have prior knowledge and experience in the field of forecasting in order to pass the exams. There are 3 exams required, and there is no single book available that can cover everything tested. You want to do as much reading as possible, and you want to have have focused review on the key topics that can make a life-and-dead difference.

The CPF exams have a lot of questions that ask for your “best decisions” (i.e. how you will tackle a situation in a live environment). In fact, of the questions you will encounter in the exams, a significant portion of them requires that you pick the best possible options. These best options are often based on experience and best practices not easily found in the standard exam text books.

ExamFOCUS Study Notes build a solid focus while revisiting key examination topics. Whether you are just starting to study, cramming at the last minute, or simply looking to refresh, this could prove to be a lifesaver!

To succeed in the exam you need to get yourself truly familiar with the most important information by going through sufficiently focused revision. This is where we fill the gap – you may think of our product as the unofficial supplement to the regular training class, or you may view it as a standalone module with a focus on building up your exam readiness.

As an effective learning aid implemented in the format of study notes, the ExamFOCUS CPF Study Notes package is designed to present information in an easy-to-understand, conversational format. Notes are well-written, technically accurate and completely representative of the key information covered by the exam.
