The Business School has an excellent record in helping students to achieve their potential, which can be seen in our latest exam results:
New for 2013 is the ‘Pass Guarantee’* for the IAD and PCIAM papers. This offers peace of mind when booking your course, and in the unlikely event that you fail your exam you will be placed on the next available course free of charge.

The Certificate in Private Client Investment Advice & Management (PCIAM) has been designed to enable existing practitioners to demonstrate their broad understanding of the principles of private client investment advice, within the context of the current regulatory environment. By completing a small amount of Continuing Professional Development (CPD) the qualification provides a route to RFA/RDR compliance.
Gaining the Certificate in Private Client Investment Advice & Management (PCIAM) demonstrates the ability to identify clients’ needs and provide solutions to those needs. This is a demanding test, which delegates are advised not to attempt without sufficient practical experience.
The exam reflects situations and issues that practitioners will encounter and requires students to apply their knowledge to answer case studies, write reports and explain techniques and terms.
PCIAM is made up of one three-hour unit, which is delivered in narrative format. Exam sessions are normally held every three months.
In addition to being a stand-alone qualification, this certificate also forms one unit of the CISI Diploma. The certificate is a Level 6 qualification and so, with a small amount of gap-filling fulfils the requirements of the RFA/RDR.
The course that we are offering is nine days in duration and will take you through all aspects of the syllabus together with revising the key areas, question practice and exam technique.
