Ethics and professional skills

EPSM/FIP/RPEM service update - 25 May 2023

Our ethics and professionalism modules (FIP/EPSM/RPEM) continue to remain temporarily out of service.  Work to move these modules onto a new hosting platform is progressing well, which will allow us to offer these modules again in the near future. 

We appreciate your continued patience whilst we carry out this work and once again wish to apologise for any disruption this may have had on your ACCA journey.

We’ll provide you with a further service update before the end of June. Should you need any further information in the meantime you can view our FAQs which support both student and affiliate queries.
