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.

Securities Lending & Borrowing - Operational Challenges
Fixed Income Portfolio Management
Compliance in Fixed Income
 
Online Learning
ICMA Executive Education is able to offer candidates the ability to study several of our qualifications through our online learning platform. The training is delivered through our innovative platform, Canvas, which allows candidates to build an online profile, interact with other students and work through the material in a structured way with the help of practical examples and videos by the course tutors. There is also an e-Tutor available to assist with any questions candidates have.

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.
