Accreditation of prior learning enables individuals to obtain credit for earlier relevant non-CII study.
The CII will award diploma and advanced diploma level credits to individuals who have obtained a relevant UK qualification in business, economics, accounting, finance, law and management within the last 10 years.
Holders of non-CII financial planning qualifications and certification such as the certified financial planner and BS ISO 22222 can also gain advanced diploma credits.
CII director of accreditation services Tamsin Mills says: “Our recognition of prior learning offers a real advantage to individuals striving for higher level qualifications and bears particular relevance in the current RDR climate. It will help avoid duplication and bring candidates a step closer to qualification.”
