Responding to COVID-19: insight, support and guidance

Introducing CIPFA Learning

CIPFA Learning is our virtual learning environment, and a key part of the improvements we're making to our professional accountancy training.

Offering a single, integrated suite of interactive teaching and learning tools, CIPFA Learning provides students training for the CIPFA Professional Accountancy Qualification (CIPFA PQ) in the UK, and for the International Public Financial Management PQ (IPFM) internationally, with an improved, more flexible, learning experience.

All CIPFA PQ students will be able to access CIPFA Learning routinely, as part of their training programme. You can read all about CIPFA Learning and the improvements we're making in our guides for students and employers on this page.

What does CIPFA Learning offer?


Students and employers can choose from one of three study modes: face-to-face, web class and self-study.


Developed and delivered by qualified CIPFA Education & Training Centre (CETC) tutors with specialist expertise in public finance – offering the same, familiar, high quality CETC tuition across all our training options.


With CIPFA Learning students can now access much of their learning online at a time, a place and a pace to suit them, module by module.
