The 6 tests and then a 2-day cumulative exam is the CFP

Taking coursework and then getting approved to take a 1-day exam is the CPA

Taking coursework or studying on your own and taking 3 large tests is the CFA

CFP = financial planning
CPA = accounting
CFA = financial analysis

FWIW, I'm studying for the CFP right now....
