Recommended course structure
CIPFA has grouped courses and modules into an easily digestible structure with a recommended route for progression for each level being spread over successive years:
- CIPFA – Level 1 (Part 1)
- CIPFA – Level 1 (Part 2)
- CIPFA – Level 2
- CIPFA – Level 3
Optional module groups

However, you may decide to add courses and modules or build your own course structure to address your organisational needs as well as addressing your career progression needs.
CIPFA recommends completing one level per year, starting with CIPFA – Level 1 (Part 1).
