What courses does the Institute offer?

At IforPE, we offer highly-specialised courses regarding the Cyprus Securities and Exchange Commission (CySEC) regulatory framework. CySEC is the national competent authority (NCA) in Cyprus that supervises and regulates all investment and ancillary services undertaken from the European island.

Additionally, through our partnership with SALVUS Funds, a boutique advisory in Europe, we provide the infrastructure for the Education team at SALVUS Funds to educate, train, and develop financial and investment services professionals. Currently, we offer more than 15 courses that relate to the regulatory framework instilled by CySEC.

Our CySEC professional courses range from Continuous Professional Development (CPD) specific courses, to the most complete CySEC Advanced, Basic, and Anti-Money Laundering (AML) courses, to offering multiple mock examinations covering the curriculums of the Cypriot regulator. We also offer free mock examinations for professionals wanting to get a flavour of how our platform operates. In addition, all our mock examinations simulate the real conditions of the CySEC examinations.

Further, our The Most CompleteTM series of courses comprehensively entail the CySEC Advanced, Basic and AML certification examinations. All three courses contain the most up-to-date preparation material with the curriculum’s latest updates. Moreover, they contain:


  • Recordings of the live workshops
  • Self-study material
  • Test questions at the end of each session
  • 2-4 mock examinations simulating the real exam
  • 1-on-1 support by SALVUS Funds
  • Certification of attendance (for CPD acknowledgement)


Undertaking a course from The Most CompleteTM series ensures professionals studying for the CySEC examinations have the necessary resources to successfully pass the exam and become a Certified Person in the CySEC Public Register.

Our current range of courses are geared towards professionals operating in and around investment firms such as Cyprus Investment Firms (CIF), investment funds such as Alternative Investment Funds and Managers (AIF & AIFM), Electronic Money Institutions (EMI), Crypto-Asset Services Providers (CASP), and other similar regulated entity structures in Cyprus.
