Our Qualifications

Our qualifications are credit rated within the Scottish Credit and Qualifications Framework (SCQF). SCQF is a globally recognised national qualifications framework. In order to be on the SCQF, IQN qualifications have to go through a rigorous, quality assured process of ‘credit rating’. For details, please visit our recognition page:

IQN qualifications have also been benchmarked against the European Qualifications Framework (EQF), making it easier for employers in European countries to compare IQN qualifications against their national qualification framework.

Our Diploma Exams

All our diploma exams are conducted by our registered centres. In addition, our registered centres help you with exam preparation and study materials. Most IQN qualifications are awarded based on passing a multiple-choice style exam. You will receive instant notification of your result, so you can take the next exciting step in your career journey.

Our Awarding Partner

Our professional certifications are jointly certificated by IQN and Scottish Qualifications Authority (SQA). SQA is sponsored by the Scottish Government’s Learning Directorate. SQA works with IQN to deliver customised awards which we call professional certifications. IQN professional certifications have been approved by SQA as SCQF credit-rated qualifications. As awarding body of IQN’s professional certifications, SQA validates our qualifications, reviews our qualifications to ensure they are up to date, externally verifies our exams and quality assures IQN as an organisation. Finally, SQA issues certificates to candidates who have successfully completed our professional certifications.
