You may be eligible to apply for credit for prior learning if you hold professional qualification. Please note that you cannot apply for credit for ACA modules where you have previously attempted that ACA exam.

Currently there is no charge for CPL for the following groups:
If this applies to you, please check our online CPL directory to see what credits may be available. To apply for CPL, please download the credit for prior learning (cost-reduction) - professional qualification application form.
If your professional qualification is not listed please contact email@example.com.
CPL applications cost £70 per module at the Certificate Level and (as of 1 July 2018) £100 for each Professional Level module.
Once you have completed the application process you will need to send evidence of your professional qualifications and exam results. All documents must be in English and any translations must be formally certified. Send documents to firstname.lastname@example.org quoting your ICAEW student number.
Good quality copies or scanned versions may be used. ICAEW routinely seek external verification from the professional body. Falsified documentation will be referred to our professional conduct department. Original documents are sent at the owner’s risk.
