How do I buy one?

Simply select the appropriate package and send the candidate's name and the date you want your OpenTicket to commence, along with your purchase order, to openticket@rsm.co.uk. We will do the rest.

Is the RSM OpenTicket™ transferable?

For customers, the OpenTicket is a no-risk option. Each OpenTicket is designated to an individual, reflecting their particular needs, so is not transferable. But, if an OpenTicket holder cannot complete their programme for any reason (ill-health, leaves the organisation, etc.), RSM will calculate the fees for the courses already taken and deduct that from the price paid for the OpenTicket, refunding the balance or crediting to the purchaser.
