    Frequently Asked Questions

    1. How comprehensive are the presentations? Are they just bullet points?

    Answer: The presentations are not bullet points, you can read them, understand, and learn. These are the official presentations we use in our instructor-led classes.

    2. Do I need to buy books to pass the exam?

    Answer: No. If you study the presentations, you can pass the exam. All the exam questions are clearly answered in the presentations.

    If you fail the first time, you must study more. Print the presentations and use Post-it to attach notes, like "Credit Risk", "Operational Risk" etc., to know where to find the answer of a question.

    3. Is it an open book exam? Why?

    Answer: Yes, it is an open book exam. Risk and compliance management is not something you have to memorize, it is something you must understand and learn.

    4. Do I have to sit for the exam soon after receiving the presentations?

    Answer: No. You can sit for the exam from your office or home, any time in the future. Your account never expires and there is no restriction of any kind.

    5. Do I have to spend more money in the future to remain certified?

    Answer: No. Your certificate never expires. It will be valid, without the need to spend money or to sit for another exam in the future.

    6. Ok, the certificate never expires, but things change.

    Answer: Recertification would be a great recurring revenue stream for the association, but it would also be a recurring expense for our members. We resisted the temptation to "introduce multiple recurring revenue streams to keep business flowing", as we were consulted. No recertification is needed for our programs.

    Things change, and this is the reason you need to become (at no cost) a member of the association. You will receive our monthly newsletter with updates, alerts and opportunities to stay current.

    7. How many hours do I need to study to pass the exam?

    Answer: It depends on your knowledge and experience. You must study the presentations at least twice, to ensure you have learned the details. The average time needed is about 46 hours, but there are important differences.

    8. I want to learn more about the online exam.

    Answer: You will be given 90 minutes to complete a 35-question multiple-choice exam. You must score 70% or higher.

    We do not send sample questions. If you study the presentations carefully, you can score 100%.

    9. Why should I get certified?

    Answer: After the failures of so many organizations during the recent crisis, firms and organizations hire "fit and proper" professionals who can provide evidence that they are qualified.

    Companies and organizations need assurance that employees have the knowledge and skills needed to mitigate risks, and to accept more responsibility. Supervisors and auditors ask for independent evidence that the process owners are qualified, and that the controls can operate as designed, because the persons responsible for these controls have the necessary knowledge and experience.

    The marketplace is clearly demanding qualified professionals in risk and compliance management. Certified professionals enjoy industry recognition and have more and better job opportunities.

    It is important to get certified and to belong to professional associations. You prove that you are somebody who cares, learns, and belongs to a global community of professionals.

    10. Why should I choose your certification program?

    Answer: It is always good to investigate first. You should search for other programs, using any search engine.

    We strongly believe that we offer the best value for money compared to all other Basel III training and certification programs:

    1. The Basel iii Compliance Professionals Association (BiiiCPA) is the largest association of Basel iii Professionals in the world. It is a business unit of the Basel ii Compliance Professionals Association (BCPA), which is the largest association of Basel ii Professionals in the world.

    2. The all-inclusive cost of the program ($297) is very low. There is no additional cost for this program, now or in the future, for any reason.

    3. There are 3 exams that are included in the cost of the program, so you do not have to spend money again if you fail.

    4. No recertification is required. Your certificate never expires.
