Program Delivery

The CQF is designed for delegates in full-time work and does not require any time away from the workplace. By dividing the program content over six months or into two levels, delegates build up their knowledge session by session around their busy work schedule. There are around two core CQF lectures a week which run from 6.00pm – 8.30pm (GMT). All training is delivered live via webcast, is also recorded and made available on the CQF Portal within 24 hours.

Currently 82% of our delegates take the program online, watching the recorded sessions at their convenience. Each delegate is given access to a comprehensive package of learning resources which are listed below.
