CPCF Training and Examinations - separate entities
CTSI emphasise that CPCF training and examinations are two separate entities. Training and examinations are not available as a package - they are booked and paid for separately. Deferral of examinations will not defer any element of training including revision days.
Unit training notes are available for revision purposes until all unit examinations have been completed. If spaces are available on revision days, in preparation for the next exam cycle, deferral and resit delegates will be able to book these separately for a one-day training fee.
