Over the years CMA has written, rewritten, adapted and added to our training program culminating in achieving Money Advice Service accreditation at 'Advice Level' for our generalist debt adviser course.

Training has always been at the heart of CMA’s services with the aim of taking individuals with little or no experience of giving debt advice to a place where they have a good understanding of the processes involved in unlocking debt issues. Through the training, they gain an in depth knowledge of the tools available to an adviser, to help find sustainable solutions for each presenting situation and ensure each client is given budgeting education to help them remain debt free, giving them real hope for the future.

CMA’s team of trainers, based all over the UK have visited numerous locations, taken hundreds of training days and taken thousands of trainees through the different courses. They have had the enormous satisfaction of seeing them make a real difference in people’s lives once trained to give advice within their local CMA centres.

CMA’s training courses dovetail nicely into the skilled and specialist areas of training provided by Wiseradviser ensuring that each adviser can continue to grow and enhance their skills and knowledge at a pace they are comfortable with and in areas relevant to the sorts of situations they encounter on a regular basis.

Hosting Training Days

If you would like to host a CMA training day, we will always do our best to meet your requirements and provide training at your venue. 

In order to get the most out of a training day, we usually prefer to have a group of 8 or more trainees attending. However if you have less than 8 people, we may well be able to arrange training depending on various factors which we will discuss with you. Our training days are usually advertised on our website where bookings can be made from other CMA centres / organisations helping to make up the number of trainees attending, if required to make the day run.

If you would like to arrange in-house training please complete the CMA Training Booking Form and email it to [email protected]

If you would like to discuss your requirements before completing the booking form, or have a general enquiry about CMA training please email us at [email protected]
