Qualification Framework

So how much more work is required to achieve level 6 than achieving only level 4?

“The recommended study time for new entrants to reach the CII’s diploma (level 4) in regulated financial planning qualification is 370 hours.

Existing advisers with a level three qualification can expect to have to study for considerably less time to attain RDR compliance (with level 4).

The recommended study time for new entrants to reach the CII’s advanced diploma in financial planning/chartered status varies depending on the route taken but is typically in excess of 1,000 hours. Chartered financial planner status also requires at least five years’ relevant work experience.” {{1}}
