Units treated as equivalent

Due to the extent of syllabus overlap, certain combinations of current and withdrawn CII units will result in only one award of credits.

If a withdrawn equivalent is held you may not need to complete a current unit in order to satisfy a qualification's completion rules. Clarification should always be sought from CII Customer Service.

Where two of these units are held, the higher of the two credit figures will be added to your CII Learning Statement. However, should you wish, you may still choose to sit an 'overlapping' unit in order to enhance your knowledge (for which you will gain no credits).

Important note: For FCA 'appropriate qualifications', such as the Diploma in Regulated Financial Planning or Certificate in Securities advice and Dealing, all learning outcomes must be matched in order for an exemption to be given against its units. In terms of current and withdrawn CII units, only units CF3 and J08 have this degree of learning outcome match against the comparable new units, R05 and R06, respectively.

* Diploma-level if completed by CII exam prior to 2007.
