Now is the time to study CeMAP®
We’ve been providing CeMAP® support and training since the exam
was created in 1998 and have helped hundreds if not thousands of
people to pass the exam.
Our unique proposition to you is cost effective training support
utilising the power of technology and the internet to guide you
through. We’re not providing face to face workshops, rather a
distance learning solution using many methods such as activities and
MP3s to listen to, videos, online tests and email tutor support.

Hi Paul, Just
thought I would congratulate you on a fantastic CeMAP®
ecourse for CeMAP®s 1, 2 & 3. I am happy to say that with
the aid of these courses I was able to attain a merit in
my CeMAP® 3 exam this past week.
I feel I could not have done it without your course
which was very well planned and very effective in
learning and applying the syllabus.

Alternative Pick and Mix
Many people like the structure and discipline
afforded by the daily email facility but some students like to dip
into the training in timescales to suit themselves. This is how it
can work as well.
We let you have the 31 daily links upfront. Each
link takes you to a webpage which outlines about an hour to an hour
and a half of work. So if you have a whole day to study, you could
complete 4 or 5 of the links at once.
Some students have completed the whole course in a
week and have passed their exam.

ifs University Registration
You need to separately get your
registration with the ifs School of Finance, pay them the fee and they
send you their rather large textbook which is the
definitive reading for the entire exam. You have to have
this as it comes part and parcel with the exam
registration. You can access their
website by clicking
Once you receive this or
get access to a PDF version on their website, you crack
on and enrol on the eCourse. Because when you bought our
eCourse, we sent you a special password and web address
so you could enrol when you were ready.
The Daily Emails
As soon as you enrol, an
email is received in your inbox that you determined.
This email explains what’s going to happen and reassures
The next day, during the
evening, you receive your first email or day 1 of the
course. It will guide you to a special hidden webpage
which contains all the stuff for day 1. Click
here now for an
example of what this looks like.
You’ll have noticed that
we provide everything you need plus total guidance as to
what you should be doing each day. It should last about
an hour to two hours, depending on how quick
you are. You’ll have a bit of reading to do – both from
the ifs School of Finance textbook and our Revision Guide. You’ll have
some activities to do as well which get you involved and
active. You can then download and listen to the MP3s
both the studio ones and the live teleseminar recordings,
view some videos
and finally you’ll have an opportunity of doing some
multiple choice questions.
And the next day, the
same thing happens and you continue like this until you
finish the course.
Paul, I have passed my CeMAP® 2 and owe my successful
pass to the revision material, tips and disciplined,
precise on-line training that I chose to enrol for.
Thank you very much.

Every 10 days you'll be sent an
online test to do which covers the areas you've been studying over
those previous 10 days. It's a 30 question test and is set at a
CeMAP® level so it's really difficult - much like the real test.
You do the test online and then it's
marked immediately and you know whether you've studies well. There's
a second test in case you fall down on the first one.
It looks like this below:
As soon as you enrol,
you get access to a tutor via email who will answer any
CeMAP related query you have, so you're not alone.
This is a feature no one really
appreciates, until you need some help.
Some people like to go
faster and some slower, so on day two we quote for you
all the links so you can rush ahead or store some up for
the weekend or when you have a weeks holiday or
whenever. You can take control.
But if you don’t want to
take control, just let the course emails continue to
arrive and guide you through the whole study plan as
we’ve worked that out for you.
The success with our eCourse is first class. Those
people who work through every element, pass…and that’s a
fact. But you do have to be careful. Skipping bits such
as the reading and maybe just doing the questions, will
spell a failure I’m afraid. Success comes from doing it
So your next step is to
sign up now and begin your eCourse. Good luck.
"As a complete novice to the
financial industry (my background is currently office
based in the rail industry and has been just over 25
years) I must compliment you and your company on the
relative ease at the knowledge I am gaining with the
daily emails that I am receiving from you."
