KPI Cubed offers the CSCP programme as classroom based courses, self-study, or assisted self study. Assisted self-study allows for 1 contact hour per week with an experienced facilitator to discuss more challenging material, especially around the many formulae and calculations, and for guidance on exam preparation. Having a weekly session where the student has to be accountable helps keep the cadence and ensures a better chance of completing the material. Self-study can be very lonely and requires much self discipline, it is always easier to chill on the couch rather than study.
