I am funding my qualification myself, do I have to pay the full fee upfront?

Diploma - 8 monthly instalments

Advanced Certificates – 4 monthly instalments
Do I have to send in a hard copy of my application form?
No, we accept emailed or scanned versions you scan the form and email it to us or complete online.
I am currently unemployed so if I undertake an ICA qualification will I improve my job prospects?
There are opportunities out there, particularly in compliance at the moment, but there are also an increased number of people taking an interest in this field (as the profile and image of 'compliance' has developed, particularly over the last few years). Experience is undoubtedly important, so you need to keep an eye out for opportunities to develop and not to be afraid of the odd knock-back.
Qualifications may help unpick this lock though. If you can demonstrate your desire to enhance your subject knowledge & progress your career, this will shine through on your CV, meaning you stand out compared to other non-qualified applicants. It also means that when you get to an interview stage, you will have the understanding of the key topics and be able to talk about them lucidly which is a good way to impress.
