IAM Qualifications


One of the IAM’s Enduring Objectives relates to furthering the capability of those within the profession through personal development and recognition.  The latter is achieved through the provision of IAM Certificate and Diploma qualifications, now recognised all over the world.

Since the launch of these qualifications in 2013, there has been a year on year increase in candidate numbers with over 12,000+ people having sat IAM exams across 70+ 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.
