With effect from January 2013, in order to gain the STA Diploma
qualification, candidates will need to have passed both the STA Diploma
Part 1 and Part 2 examinations. The Part 1 examination is a multiple
choice 120 question examination, which lasts 2 hours and which examines
the Diploma syllabus on a definitional basis. The examination can be
combined with either the STA Diploma Part 1 Course or the STA Diploma
Part 2 Course or sat as a standalone examination.
Passing the STA Diploma Part 1 examination gives exemption from the IFTA CFTe I examination.
The UK Winter 2017 STA Diploma Part 1 examination will take place on 4 December in Central London.
Deadline for applications to sit the examination is 20 November 2017
