The IMA is always striving to make training more accessible, including seeking sponsors to fund free or reduced cost training.
Currently the following free or reduced cost training opportunities are available:
- Free training places for some MaPS funded advisers
- IMA-subsidised training places for non-MaPS-funded IMA members
- Free training places for Welsh Government funded debt advisers
- Free training for Non-Practising and Trainee members
See below for full details.
Free training places for some MaPS-funded advisers
As we move into the second half of our online training programme, we are delighted to be able to now offer TWO FREE places per MaPS funded adviser. The limit of two places per adviser applies to courses on our April to September programme as well as upcoming courses from October 2021 onwards. This means if you have already claimed one free place, you will be able to claim another one for any upcoming course between now and the end of March 2022. If you are yet to claim a free place at all, you can use your two places for any upcoming courses of your choosing, subject to availability.
This funding is only available for advisers funded under mainstream MaPS projects for which compliance with the MaPS CPD scheme is also a requirement.

IMA-subsidised training places for non-MaPS funded IMA Members
We are once again offering an IMA subsidy for non-MaPS funded members. This applies only to full day courses.
The subsidy is £45 per courses and reduces the amount payable to only £50. This is limited to one subsidised course per eligible member and is subject to availability. To claim a subsidised place please select a non-MaPS funded subsidised place in the fee box on the online booking form.

Free training places for Welsh Government funded debt advisers
We are delighted to once again offer free training places for advisers working on Welsh government funded face-to-face debt advice projects.

Free training for Non-Practising and Trainee members
If you are an IMA member in the Non-Practising or Trainee categories and there is a course that you want to attend, email email@example.com in the morning no more than two working days prior to the course date. If there is an unallocated place available, you can book it free of charge.
We are unable to guarantee that free places will be available on a particular course; if it is very important that you attend, we advise you to book a chargeable place using the normal booking process.
In the past we’ve received also generous sponsorship from:
- Grant Thornton
- Money and Pensions Service
- Money Saving Expert Charity
- Severn Trent Trust Fund
