The Institute of Asset Management (IAM) are increasing the fees for the IAM Certificate and IAM Diploma exams.
The IAM has moved to have their qualifications formally recognised by the UK qualifications regulator Ofqual as part of its development plan towards Chartered Asset Management status. This move has required a number of changes:
1. Full question bank re-write to bring all questions in line with regulations
2. Support for 4 languages allowing the exam to be undertaken in different languages
3. Internationalisation of questions – an international panel has checked each question to ensure the meaning translates across languages
4. Move to a new international exams provider – Pearson’s Vue. This makes the exam more accessible internationally
These positive changes will bring increased value to the qualifications and make the IAM qualifications the leading standard for Asset Management training and qualifications. The changes do however come with an increased cost to reflect the cost of implementation and improved services.
