A practical guide to the process to obtain CITP, from identifying your relevant strengths, how to make use of the SFIAPlus framework, completing the initial application and what to (and not to) include in your full application, the final interview stage - how it is organised and what to include (and not to include) in your presentation.

Attendance at obtaining fellowship and charted status event, on 24 January 2022 and repeated on 23 February 2022, would be an advantage, but not required. You could find it useful to identify your possible SFIAplus levels in advance but again not required. The webinar will include practical actions that you could take to increase your SFIAplus level.
