Finance professionals need to demonstrate that they understand and can apply ethical and professional behaviour in real-world work situations. The EPSM helps you develop these practical real-world skills so you can make an impact from day one in organisations.
The module takes approximately 20 hours to complete and you are able to access any of the module content again once completed if you wish to refresh your knowledge.
The module will also support you to exam success at Strategic Professional. We therefore recommend you complete the module towards the end of completing your Applied Skills exams and before attempting any Strategic Professional exams.
The module helps you to develop the professional skills you need to demonstrate in your Strategic Professional exams. It helps focus your thinking on real world work scenarios, developing your understanding and skills on how to approach the challenges presented. This is very similar to the approach you’ll be required to take at Strategic Professional exams.
Professional skills are specific skills that you generally acquire through work-place experience – for example team-working, communication, negotiation ability.
As a result of the changing business landscape globally, employers are looking for finance professionals to add value immediately. So to have technical knowledge, skills and abilities - combined with professional skills and qualities - will be much more in demand by employers.
There are a series of tests throughout the module and the final unit of the module is an assessment which you will need to pass. If you don’t pass first time, then you will get feedback and you can try again until you are successful - without having to pay any additional fees.
There is a one off cost for the module, with no resit fees. Once a student has paid for the module they will be able to do the assessment multiple times and have unlimited access to the module content.

Yes - completion of the EPSM will support in your learning towards Strategic Professional exams, so you can still purchase the module even if you have completed the old Professional Ethics module.
