The IFID, PMC and OCP are designed for those within their first ten years in the financial industry.  The programmes are challenging and demanding, and will equip participants with practical skills which they can use in their day-to-day work.  Many expert speakers contribute to each of the courses providing delegates with key insights into the financial industry.

The courses are classroom based, 5-6 days in length and have a multiple choice exam at the end of the course.  The IFID is also available as a distance learning course.  Candidates who are successful in the exam will receive a certificate, jointly issued by ICMA and the ICMA Centre, Henley Business School, University of Reading.
