Application overview

Once you've checked your eligibility you'll know whether or not we have recently reviewed your qualification.

If we haven't we recommend you make an application anyway; we'll advise next steps once we've reviewed your completion certificate and results transcript.

The application process

Check whether we have recently reviewed your qualification by visiting our eligibility page. Post your application form and supporting evidence to CII Customer Service. a) We've recently reviewed your qualification
We will confirm your award eligibility by email.

If you are eligible for an award, you contact CII Customer Service to claim and pay for the credits.



Once you have claimed your award you can obtain your updated learning statement by visiting our learning statement request page.

b) We haven't recently reviewed your qualification
We'll email you to request further qualification material (eg syllabus, specimen exams). On receipt we'll review and confirm your eligibility by email.

Recognition of prior learning fees

If your application is successful, a fee per CII credit is payable before the prior learning is awarded:

We will advise you the correct fee based on the number of credits and your membership status. Please do not send payment in advance.
