Qualifications and Programmes
The diagram below shows the wide-ranging programme of qualifications for employees working in, or aspiring to work in, the financial services industry.
Most qualifications are available globally, and the CISI offers a global model by which we recognise local regulatory exams as the relevant regulatory paper as well as several country specific regulatory exams.
Qualifications normally consist of more than one exam unit. View the full range of CISI exams or select the programme or qualification from the diagram below. If you already know which exam you wish to take, please complete the Qualifications Registration Form.
UK candidates taking CISI level 3 Certificate awards (excluding IOC) are now required to pass the CISI IntegrityMatters online integrity test before sitting their exams. Find out more
