Clients share a variety of challenges related to getting the training their team members need, including:

  • "Sometimes training doesn't come to my city"
  • "Sometimes I can't travel due to other commitments during the week"
  • "Sometimes my company training budget doesn't have money to accommodate traveling."

As a result, we are unable to discount the fees, as many people expect.

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.

Q9. How and when do I get my student binder?

A9. Student binders are sent to via UPS, FedEx or other courier service, and typically arrive between Wednesday and Friday the week preceding the training.

Q10. Could I get my student binder earlier so I can start reading ahead before the class?

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, binders are only printed and shipped the week preceding training.

Q11. Can I register the week or day before training?

A11. Yes, absolutely. 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 binder may not arriving prior to the commencement of the course. Please note having the binder with you is not required to participate in the course, as all slides are broadcast on screen during the live online training.

Q12. Will the course be recorded for viewing at a later time?

A12. No, we 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.

Q13. Can I record the course or a part of it?

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.

Q14. Can friends, family or colleagues sit in on the training while I am taking it?

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.
