A4. In short we do, but we recognize perception of differnet people varies on what an online cost should be. Please note, due to the cost of professional online conferencing equipment, dedicated high-speed internet in venues, and live training platform maintenance and delivery costs, providing live online training imposes a high cost to deliver the service. As a result, we are limited in how much we are able to vary between onsite and online participation. Current pricing is designed to make our training accessible to our members and the public at large.
A5. Because our customers demand the highest quality of service, we have set standards to ensure your experience is commensurate with your expectations. Additionally, you are part of our classroom and the only way to ensure the classroom is inclusive of everyone, our standards do require everyone online to have, enable and use an echo cancelling microphone, speakers (or headset) and web cam throughout the entire course, without exception.
A6. Unless otherwise specified, online students are participating in a blended classroom (online students are electronically brought into a live onsite classroom). As a result, the schedule for all students (onsite and online) will be based on the local time zone of the onsite training venue, so please be sure to note the time zone for that course before registering.
A7. The certification body has a partnership arrangement with an online exam proctoring service allowing students to take the exam from your home computer. More details will be provided directly from the certification authority following the course.
A8. No, as all training is delivered through our internally hosted and managed online training platform, which does not require students to install any software or browser applets. All you need is an Internet browser, a reliable high speed internet connection, a webcam, and echo cancelling microphone. To prepare, just make sure these devices are installed and working correctly with your system, as our instructors do not provide desktop support for student or their company owned peripheral.
A9. Student packages are sent electronically as an eBook. You will receive information on where to download and how to setup the elctronic version of your course material.
A10. While we applaud your enthusiasm, ensuring the highest quality for our students requires us to constantly be reviewing and updating our training material to keep up with changes in regulations, updates to ISO publications, and more. As a result, course materials are only distributed at the end of the week preceding training.
A11. Registration for all our courses closes on the last business day in the week prior to commencement, at 5:00 PM US Eastern Time Zone. Notwithstanding this, we recommend students ideally register at least one full week prior to the commencement of a course to ensure the timely arrival of your student binder. For students registering inside of seven days prior of a course, there is a risk your student package, which includes a eBook version of the tranditional student binder, may not arriving prior to the commencement of the course. Please note having the eBook with you is not required to participate in the course, as all slides are broadcast on screen during the live online training.
A12. We generally do not as a matter of course, record any of our courses. Where we do, it is for internal purposes only e.g. instructor monitoring / auditing, creating segments for self-paces training modules, etc.
A13. CIMA has a strict policy that no student may record any course or any part thereof, in any format. Anyone doing so is a serious legal matter resulting in violation of US and International copyright laws, as well as a potential violation of state or federal criminal law. In addition to the obvious legal trouble, students recording training sessions challenge other students from feeling free to participate in classroom discussion and ask questions during the course.
A14. No, your registration is for one person only, yourself. Allowing others to participate while you are taking your training, would be a violation of the terms and conditions of the agreement between you and CIMA, during your registration.
