What is a CFLE?
CFLE stands for Certified Family Life Educator.

A family life educator is someone who shares information related to family life with families, couples, parents, youth, or students by teaching, writing, coordinating, speaking, or creating products.

A CFLE is a family life educator who has met requirements for certification established by the National Council on Family Relations (NCFR). The CFLE designation is a new and exciting advancement in the field of family life education, giving family life educators professional credentials and standards.

While CFLEs may work specifically in one discipline, such as parent education or marriage enrichment, their understanding of the many areas that affect today's families enables them to be more effective in their efforts to educate and work with individuals and families.
