  • Service delivery so far has been alright in the sense that you have been able to respond to all the queries that I have been making. I would only suggest that more needs to be done to advocate for the profession more especially in countries like ours (Malawi) where access to internet possess a huge challenge as the only dependable network is subscribed by very few due to costs implications. There are few people who understand the important of having professional in the field where we are and more so when you are working in the private sector. There is a general conception that professionals in this field are destined to work in the public sector.

  • 3. Over all service was very excellent including provided study material, timely responded in email and follow-up for answer sheet. Particularly motivated me to complete this course. Study material and exam should be provided in French version also, because most of people are not that much knowledgeable in English. In west of Africa side lot of people speak in French only.

  • During my study to earn my CFIP certificate, IICFIP provided me with all I need to pass. I have a nice experience with them when my certificate was returned back from my country, Jordan, to Kenya because I did not receive it and when I contacted them, they resent it without any hesitation and without any additional costs. I really respect IICFIP and appreciate its mission
