COMMUNITY MONEY ADVICE TRAINING DAYS
In order to provide debt advice in the UK, your organisation must usually have FCA authorisation, unless you are exempt (eg: local authority). Debt advice training can be completed at any time, but (unless exempt) FCA authorisation must be obtained before you can open your service.
As a CMA affiliation requirement, Debt Advisers in CMA affiliate debt advice centres must be working towards the CMA Level 3 Award in Generalist Debt Advice. If you believe you may have other equivalent MaPS accredited training, please email us to discuss.
REMOTE TRAINING will be delivered using Zoom video conferencing, for which you will require a computer or tablet with working webcam and microphone. Hard copy materials will be posted, aiming to arrive well before the training date(s).
Zoom training timings are 9.30am - 3.30pm
FACE-TO-FACE TRAINING. Hard copy training manuals will be handed to trainees on the training day. If you would like to request face-to-face training please complete this booking form.
F2F training timings are 10.00am - 4.00pm
TRAINING FEES are per person per training day. CMA Affiliate centres qualify for a £30 per person per day discount which requires a promo code during checkout. This has been emailed to centre managers and can also be found in Centre Resources under 'Training'. To qualify for CMA Affiliate discount, the application for your centre to join CMA must have been processed before booking training.

CMA Budget Coach Training Day
I have trained with Community Money Advice and started as a volunteer at the church, giving debt advice and enjoying every minute of it. I have now been able to secure a part time paid job as a debt adviser. This opportunity has given me a secure and hopeful future.
