Certificate in Public Financial Management (Cert PFM)

Who is it for?

The new Certificate in Public Financial Management will equip finance professionals working in your organisation with stronger and more relevant budgeting, financial reporting and financial management skills.

There are no formal educational requirements to beginning the Cert PFM.

It has been prepared for:

  • New entrants to the public sector.
  • Staff with practical experience but without formal professional qualifications.
  • Professional accountants moving into the public sector from the corporate sector or professional practice.

If you already have a professional accountancy qualification, this qualification can be a valuable source of CPD, offering an opportunity to top up existing competencies with specific knowledge and skills around public financial management.

If you do not hold a professional accountancy qualification, it offers you the opportunity to gain formal recognition of your capabilities.
