CII to give credits for prior learning

Advisers working towards the Chartered Insurance Institute’s diploma or advanced diploma in financial planning can now gain credits for prior study under its Accreditation of Prior Learning scheme.

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.”
