A. Conducting diploma exams
Our diploma exams are conducted by our registered centres. We provide necessary guidelines for conducting exams at our registered centres. Your centre must have appropriate infrastructure to conduct our computer based exams (CBEs). Your centre needs seamless internet facility, trained staff and computers to run our CBEs. Before scheduling an exam, your centre will have to collect agreed exam fees from students on behalf of IQN.
B. Providing study resources
Each of our diploma qualifications requires students to study specific textbooks. In addition to textbooks, students also need access to practice questions and/ sample exam papers. As a centre, you will be responsible to provide these study resources to your students. We will work closely with your centre to ensure that your team has the exact understanding of the study resources that the students need.
C. Conducting exam preparation classes
Your centre must have qualified and experienced trainers to deliver exam preparation classes for the students. As part of our centre approval process, we will need you to submit CVs of your centre’s trainers. Trainers could be your full-time or part-time staff. Regardless of their nature of affiliations with your centre, all trainers must have relevant qualifications and experience to deliver our diploma syllabus.
In order to deliver IQN certification courses, a centre must first obtain centre approval from IQN. IQN professional courses include CFS, GCMA, CBM and CPMA. Unlike our diploma exams, our certification exams are conducted by Pearson VUE. Our centres will provide exam preparation classes and study resources for our students. If we have a registered centre near a student’s location, we will require the student to study with the centre. We do not allow any ‘independent study’ in locations where we have a registered centre.
You do not have to pay any fees to become IQN registered centre. Initial registration is free! However, after initial registration your centre’s annual registration fee is due and payable on or before 31 January each year.
For example, if you may become a registered centre in June 20X8, your centre can launch and run IQN qualifications without paying any approval fees to IQN at the beginning. However, your centre needs to pay annual registration fees in January 20X9 and then once in every subsequent year. Currently annual centre registration fee is £200.
