Generally there is no deadline to enroll as CIFATM candidate. Our enrolment process is made up of several simple steps that require you to select an online training program, provide your personal details, and remit payment at the end of the process. You may begin your training as soon as you complete the online process and remit your payment. At the end of the enrolment process, an email will be sent to you to guide your next step.

If you are unable to pay online using a credit card, you can enrol online and send your payment via bank transfer. This is called part-enrolment. Your payment must be received within 30 days of part-enrolment online. Therefore you should only start the part-enrolment process if you are able to bank transfer your payment straight away. Please note that if your payment is not received within 30 days, your part enrolment will be cancelled.

Select Program
To begin the process, click on the “Enroll” button at the home page or the top of the website, and choose a desired program.
