COVID-19 hub

Following government advice, we are implementing our contingency plans to ensure that our services to members are maintained as near to normal as possible, with the needs of our members, staff, volunteers and suppliers very much at the forefront of our minds.

As the conditions and our response evolves, we will provide regular updates here.

Read on for details of our response to the virus including relevant guidance to support you.

Protecting our staff and ensuring continuity for members

We have closed our offices. This means that staff members will be working remotely until further notice. We are replanning the face-to-face aspects of our services and, where possible, finding digital alternatives for delivering them. We will update these pages as our plans evolve.

You can find information regarding changes to our events programme and what to do about cancellations here and on our COVID-19 policy page

Exams suspensions

Pearson Vue, an exam provider of ours, have suspended all exams in a bid to protect staff and test candidates and prevent the spread of COVID-19.

Candidates concerned about the exam authorisation window should get in touch with IIA Global via the CCMS - where you'll also be able to re-book exams for free.

Status updates on Pearson Vue's contingency planning in this regard can be found here.
