Accreditation fee for UK centres is £600 per Centre, paid in two £300 instalments.

Accreditation fee for international Centres (outside of UK) is £1,000 per Centre for the first centre, and £575 per Centre for additional Centres.

Annual fee for all Centres is £225 per Centre commencing on the second year of accreditation

Government funding is available to assist with the cost for students to study some CIBTAC qualifications. This varies from country to country, as all government funding schemes are different.

In the UK, the process is for CIBTAC to submit qualifications to the Student Funding Agency for them to consider including these in their catalogue for adult learner loans and if accepted, details can be found here by clicking on the “learning aims” tab at the top left of the page. To be eligible for funding, the learner will need to meet the SFA’s criteria and be studying at a recognised training organisation. As an awarding organisation, CIBTAC is not involved in the drawdown of funds or for a specific individual’s application, our role is to work with the SFA’s requirements to approval for the qualification itself to be fundable.

If you are in the UK and do not meet the criteria for an Adult Learner Loan, you may still be able to receive a Career Development loan to assist with you tuition costs. More information can be found here.

Please Contact us here or email if you are a Centre that wishes CIBTAC to assist with a qualification funding application in your country.
