Foundation Qualifications
These qualifications provide a comprehensive introduction to the front office and operations areas of the financial markets. They are designed for those who are just starting their careers within the financial industry, as well as for candidates who need a deeper understanding of the terminology used within the marketplace.

These examined qualifications are available as either a three day classroom based course or a three month online learning programme (with the exception of the IFI and IPM). Candidates who successfully pass the exam will receive a certificate, jointly issued by ICMA and the ICMA Centre, Henley Business School, University of Reading.

These examined qualifications are five days in length. The ICMA Fixed Income Certificate (FIC) is also available to study through our online learning platform.

In-house training
ICMA Executive Education can deliver any of its qualifications and training programmes on an in-house basis. 

The syllabus of each programme can be delivered in its current format (as per the public version) or modifications can be made where necessary to accommodate a client’s specific training needs.  This allows for specific subjects to be addressed, which might otherwise not be raised in a public forum.

In-house training is a cost-efficient way of training large groups of staff, as well as having a bespoke programme conducted which is tailored to the organisation’s requirements. Courses can be delivered at a time which fits in with the organisation’s schedule.
