Accredited Training Partners

The CISI does not offer training for candidates preparing to sit CISI exams. Instead the Institute accredits external partners to do so. The CISI is pleased to announce that Capital Markets & Derivatives Training, CCL Academy, Examready, Fitch Learning, Glascow Consulting, Kaplan Financial and ZISHI Cornerstone have been awarded premier partner status. For more information on premier partner status see our Premier Accredited Training Partner FAQs.

Become an Accredited Training Partner

The CISI's accreditation process is a key feature of its quality assurance. The purpose of accreditation is to enable training partners to demonstrate they can deliver quality training and support for all candidates who sit the CISI's exams.

This is a formal and visible process that reassures clients and customers that key suppliers provide a high quality service linked to the CISI's qualifications.

Benefits of Accreditation:

  • membership of a network of high quality, selected partners offering face-to-face training for the CISI's globally recognised qualifications
  • licence to use CISI and CISI Accredited Training Partner logos on marketing and promotional materials
  • listing on CISI's website
  • tutor support materials, including access to CISI’s online ATP Portal.
  • free exam sitting for tutors
  • ongoing contribution to CISI qualifications' development
  • Invite to ATP quarterly forums if based in the UK

Tutor support

The CISI offers a support service to tutors preparing candidates for its exams in the UK and overseas. This includes provision of learning manuals, training materials and practice exam questions.

The CISI can also provide, for an additional fee, tuition (usually two-three days), using freelance trainers associated with the Institute, to assist the training partner in training its own tutors to deliver courses of high quality and consistency.


Before becoming an accredited training partner(ATP), potential training partners must satisfy the CISI's requirements and show the capability, expertise and facilities to provide training and support. All tutors must sit at least one of the examinations for which they intend to become accredited.

One representative of the partner must apply for membership of the CISI during the first year of accreditation.

An annual review is undertaken to ensure that the most up-to-date activities of the partner are recorded including changes to key contacts, new subjects taught, and that the partner continues to meet the standards of high quality training required.
