Study Period Extension

Need More Time?

The CIFE and ACIFE programs are designed to be completed in 3 weeks to 3 months, depending on your time commitment. You receive 10 months of access for your convenience, and to accommodate students facing exigencies such as illness, family deaths, work commitments, or anything else, we offer discounted study extensions. If you are pressed for time and unable to finish your certification in the allotted 10 months you can always avail one of the following extensions:

Module access is activated upon completion of payments. To register for the exam after the expiry of the access period, we do not require you to re-enroll into the program, costing up to $1495. Rather, we offer a discounted $295 fee (payable in 2 installments of $147.5), usable with or without a study extension for module access. Exams are sold separately from study extensions. We do not share exam questions and answers. If you take the exam with a study extension, you must take the exam within 6 months of the end of your study extension period.

Study extensions and post-access exams are only offered up to 1 year after the end of the original 10 month access period. After this time, it is up to Ethica's discretion whether to offer a study extension and exam or not.
