Study Period Extension

Need More Time?


The CIFE and ACIFE programs are designed to be completed in 3 weeks to 3 months, depending on your time commitment. You receive 8 months of access for your convenience, and to accommodate students facing exigencies such as illness, family deaths, work commitments, or anything else, we offer discounted study extensions. If you are pressed for time and unable to finish your certification in the allotted 8 months you can always avail one of the following extensions:

  • 2 weeks: $150 (payable in 2 installments of $75)
  • 1 month: $225 (payable in 3 installments of $75)
  • 2 months: $350 (payable in 5 installments of $70)
  • 4 months: $475 (payable in 6 installments of $79)

Module access is activated upon completion of payments. To register for the exam after the expiry of the access period, we do not require you to re-enroll into the program, costing up to $1100. Rather, we offer a discounted $175 fee (payable in 2 installments of $87.5), usable with or without a study extension for module access. If you take the exam with a study extension, you must take the exam during the study extension period.
