Frequently asked questions

There are no formal educational prerequisites. If your educational background is not in English, you must demonstrate a high standard of verbal and written English to be admitted to a CIPD Programme. You may be required to complete a pre-assessment to demonstrate your English language competence.

In order to determine the most suitable level for you, we will conduct a short initial diagnostic assessment (on the phone or face to face) and then recommend the level that would be best suited to your education, experience and goals.

You may be eligible for exemptions, credit transfers or recognition of prior learning if you have studied similar modules previously. Contact us with evidence of your certificate of achievement and we will discuss eligibility on a case-by-case basis

Typically, you can complete the training for the certificate programme in 6-12 months and the diploma in 6-15 months. There are several programme formats to suit your schedule. It will take approximately 3 months after you submit your final assessment to receive your certificate from CIPD.
