Diploma in Money and Debt Advice.

We have developed the first Ofqual accredited diploma in money and debt advice. The Chartered Institute of Credit Management (CICM), Europe’s largest professional credit management organisation, is the awarding body for the qualification.

Unit details

There are six money and debt advice units in total. Credits from each of the units can be accumulated towards either the diploma in money and debt advice or a diploma in credit management (minimum 37 credits required).

The qualification is very flexible. You can study towards the diploma by completing all six units or just study for one and receive an individual unit award.

Assignments have both a principles and a practice section, you can choose to study just one or both sections.
