Operational level is the first level of the CIMA Professional Qualification. In order to gain entry you need to have completed the CIMA Certificate in Business Accounting or have been awarded exemptions based on a relevant business or accounting qualification. You can check your exemptions via the CIMA Exemptions page on CIMA's website.
The subjects E1, P1 and F1 can be done in any order, but all three subjects must be passed before the Operations Case Study can be attempted.
You can start at any time, study from anywhere and set your own pace. Apart from study material and exam practice questions, you also get a Study Plan and unlimited tutor access for 3 months or until your session-based exam. Study at your own pace and in your own space. You can speed up your studies if you want to qualify quickly - no waiting for classes to begin. Or you can take it slowly if you wish.
