Special Notice

Due to a systems error, between October 2012 and February 2017 the certificates issued for the CISI Level 3 Award for Introduction to Investment contained an incorrect Ofqual Qualification Accreditation Number (QAN). All certificates that were distributed within this period did not contain the correct QAN of 501/0782/3. Due to the historical nature of this error, the decision has been taken to reissue those certificates issued from 1 September 2016 to 28 February 2017 ONLY.

Those who received their certificate between 1 October 2012 and 31 August 2016 are still able to receive an updated certificate with the correct QAN and can request this, by contacting
