Professional Development

STEP is an unusual body in that its certificates and diplomas are initial professional development for some and CPD for others. In regions such as the UK and Canada people often turn to STEP after qualification as a solicitor, accountant, financial planner and so on, as it offers exciting private client career development. In other regions the STEP/CLT/ITCA International Trusts Management diploma often acts as a first professional qualification and provides a route through to a trust officer/manager role and beyond.
