The Money Instruction Book was created and developed by Paul Richard who is also the ICFE's executive director. It's the second generation personal finance curriculum for the ICFE, their first personal finance curriculum was known as "The DOLLARPLAN: Spending and Savings Techniques for the 1990s". Over 500 individuals nationwide have attended two day instructor training seminars put on by the ICFE in the 1990s. Over 250,000 consumers are estimated to have attended classes utilizing ICFE personal finance curriculum.

The Money Instruction Book Classroom/Seminar Presentation

There is a great deal of flexibility in presenting The Money Instruction Book course, depending on the setting. For adult education, community colleges, university extension courses, bankruptcy education and Learning Annex settings, classes run from seven to thirteen weeks. More often, however, ICFE Certified Instructors pick and choose the chapters they want to present and set up a seminar series lasting from one to five or six weeks. Each class is about two hours.
PowerPoint presentations on each of the 12 chapters (and also each quiz) enhances both the classroom presentation the Money Instruction Book and the participants learning experience. The PowerPoints are very user friendly and can be prepared by the ICFE to fit shorter courses.
At the beginning of each chapter in the ICFE Certified Instructor's version are teaching techniques and tips in addition to the major learning points of each lesson/chapter. This also gives the Instructor a guideline for each chapter presentation.

Class Materials

Individual Money Instruction Books may be purchased by each class member and the cost each is $49.95 (postage additional).

The certification course utilizes the at-home study approach. Candidates for ICFE Instructor Certification take the Money Instruction Book course at their leisure and must complete each quiz, at the end of each of the 12 chapters, they must be returned to the ICFE. There is a Final Examination too. It's an overall test of course materials and instructor techniques and educational goals. The final must also be returned to the ICFE for a score and subsequent Certification.
First, you enroll, and after the ICFE Certified Instructor package arrives in about a week, complete the Money Instruction Book course at your leisure. Be sure to complete the quiz at the end of each chapter (using the answer sheet included). There is also a final written exam at the conclusion. The answer sheet for the final and the chapter quizzes must be returned to the ICFE for scoring.
