BECOMING OUR CENTRE
Delivering IQN Diploma
In order to deliver IQN diplomas, a centre must first obtain centre approval from IQN. Your centre may choose to offer selected diplomas or all of our diploma qualifications. At the time of application, your centre needs to confirm which of the diploma qualifications it intends to offer.
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.
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.
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.
Teaching IQN Certifications
In order to deliver IQN professional certifications, a centre must first obtain centre approval from IQN. IQN professional certifications include CFS, CSM 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.
Apply for centre approval
To become IQN registered centre, your organisation needs to go through our approval process. Once approved, your organisation will be invoiced up to £200 as initial approval fee. However, initial approval fee is discounted on a pro rata basis depending on which month of the year your organisation is being approved.
After initial approval, your organisation will have to pay £200 as annual registration fee. Annual registration fees become due on/before 31st December each year.
For example, your organisation may become approved in July 202X by paying £100 as an initial approval fee. Your centre's annual registration fees will be due on 31st December 202X and then once at the end of every subsequent year.
