About this event

The CIPFA Diploma in Corporate Governance is completed over approximately nine months, which includes eight days of classroom learning and approximately 80 hours of additional work to complete the assessment requirements.

For this course, the classroom learning is delivered online via virtual classrooms. You will be provided a link to join each workshop online. Our trainer will be there to greet you and the other delegates, and we aim to deliver just as we would if everyone was together in a physical training room. For best results we recommend the use of webcams.

Your trainers will be available throughout the programme to provide support, you will have access to recordings of all module presentations and we will arrange online group 'clinic' sessions during the course.
