The CISI in Switzerland

The CISI's work is guided by our National Advisory Council (NAC) in Switzerland which consists of senior executives from across the securities sector.

The council, led by Laurence Rose FCSI, plays a vital role in advising the Institute on national education, continuing professional development (CPD) requirements, events and membership to ensure they meet the needs of our local members and financial community.

Candidates can book exams online and sit exams at our local computer-based test (CBT) centre in Geneva. We hope to offer testing in Zurich later in 2018.

Why CISI qualifications?

Whether you choose to self-study using the CISI workbook and elearning material, or study via one of our Accredited Training Providers, we have a number of resources that will help you prepare.
If you would like to attend a formal training course in Switzerland, please contact Fitch Learning, our Accredited Training Partner (ATP).
