Exam centre registration will open approximately 6 months before the examination session and the exam centre can be booked up to 24 hours before the examination session, subject to availability. Candidates should note that unfortunately, Test Centers will be unable to indicate availability until a couple of months before the exam date.

Candidates should book at the earliest opportunity to secure their preferred location as exam centres are assigned on a first come, first served basis and their availability may vary between exam sessions. Candidates wishing to change the location of their exam centre after booking must do so via the candidate website or call centre at least 48 hours before the scheduled appointment.

The exam is provided on-screen as a computerised test at Pearson VUE’s worldwide network of testing centres. Candidates will be given access to Pearson VUE’s test centre locations when they register for their exam.

The testing time limit noted on Pearson VUE web pages reflects the total appointment time, including an NDA, a 10-minute tutorial and the exam time of 90 minutes.

For further information please contact the IRM.
