Since the launch of the IAM qualifications in 2013, there has been a year on year increase in candidate numbers with over 7000 people having sat our exams within 28 countries.

With a commitment to continuously improving services, the IAM has partnered with Pearson Vue, the world’s largest computer-based testing provider.  This partnership provides efficient delivery of exams across the world, increasing the user experience by making exams more accessible, the booking process simpler whilst offering improved support. Examinations are now available locally across the globe, with candidates selecting when and where they want to take them.  This is achieved through our partnership with PearsonVue.

Through Pearson Vue, our exams can be taken at either one of over 5,500 centres in 180 countries around the world at a venue set up and facilitated by one of our exam approved Endorsed Training Providers, or at home, through the secure and monitored OnVue exam portal.

This service completes our global reach to everyone wishing to take an IAM exam, providing they have access to a suitable laptop and working environment.

OnVue sponsor

On Vue, was implemented in June 2020 as a part of our COVID-19 continuity plan through sponsorship by the Asset Management Academy (AMA – a division of AMCL), to whom we are very grateful.  This service completes our global reach to everyone wishing to take an IAM exam, providing they have access to a suitable laptop and working environment.

Who is the IAM Certificate for?

The IAM Certificate is aimed at those new to asset management or with some initial experience of working in an asset management role. Equally, you may have worked in asset management for a while and wish to embark on discipline-relevant qualifications.

Who is the IAM Diploma for?

A more advanced qualification for those that have already obtained the Certificate, aimed at individuals with prior asset management knowledge and experience, typically working in or preparing for specialist or management roles.

There are no entry requirements for the qualification and it is not essential to be an IAM member, however, registration with the IAM is required. Please ensure you are logged in before applying for the IAM Certificate or Diploma.

Preparing for your exam

If you are not quite ready to self-study for the IAM exams you may prefer joining a face to face or online course provided by an IAM Endorsed Training Provider.
