Training and Events

Please use the tabs on the left to see details of CMA training courses.

For CMA affiliate centres, please login to the website and access the booking forms in the Centre Resources area.

If you are an external organisation and have a group of eight or more people wanting to undertake CMA Training, we will come to you and run the training days at your own venue. If you have less than eight people we may still be able to arrange training at your venue. If you would like to arrange training in this way, or have a general enquiry about CMA Training, please contact us.

If you are an individual or represent a smaller group, then you can book places on one of the existing training days listed below (subject to availability). Alternatively, you can make a booking by email, here.

Please note that ALL bookings on courses should be made at least ONE WEEK before the course date. This allows us to send out joining instructions in plenty of time as well as any required pre-course reading. Should you need to book less than one week before the date of the course, please send a covering email to [email protected] so that we will be aware of the booking and can supply you with the required information in time for the training day.

Only fully confirmed tranining days are listed on the website, but others are being arranged in advance all the time. If you would like to see if there are any other forthcoming courses in your area, please contact us telling us how many people are interested in attending training, which course and where you are geographically.

Financial Conduct Authority Limited Permission Authorisation

CMA training is designed to equip you through our Money Advice Service accredited Level 3 Award to deliver face to face debt advice. However, it is illegal to provide debt advice without the required authorisation from the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA). 

If you are not affiliated to CMA through one of our centres and you wish to use our training course for the provision of debt advice then you must obtain the required FCA authorisation before you can give debt advice. The following link gives examples of what does and does not consitute debt advice and for which activities you must obtain FCA authorisation: FCA Perimeter Guidance 17.7 By using the examples in this link, you will be able to determine if what you want to do will require FCA authorisation

Joining Instructions

We send joining instructions one week before the date of the training day. So even if your booking has been made weeks or months before the date, you won't receive the joining instructions until one week before the date. This is because we should have a definite list of delegates by then and be able to send the joining instructions to all the delegates at the same time. If you need to know the address of the venue to decide whether it is a location you can get to or for travelling arrangements, please email [email protected] and we will send you the address and postcode

If you have booked onto a training day and you haven't received your joining instructions within 5 days of the training day date, please email [email protected]

Disability Access

If you require disability access for the training day(s) you wish to attend, please email us at [email protected] BEFORE you make your booking so that we can discuss your specific requirements with the venue and seek to make reasonable adjustment if possible
