The IPA has decided to temporarily suspend fees for its entire suite of courses, qualifications and exams for IPA member agencies, their employees and IPA personal members until 2 October 2020. Please ensure you familiarise yourself with our COVID-19 Free Learning Scheme Terms and Conditions before making your booking.
IPA members can access the learning for free without an exam booking by booking onto 'Free Learning for IPA Members'. However, in order to achieve this qualification, you must book onto and pass an exam.
Due to popular demand for online learning during the outbreak of COVID-19, we we are running two additional Foundation Certificate exams in the UK on Monday 29 June and Monday 28 September 2020. Both exams will be held online and are free for IPA members. The June exam booking deadline has now closed, but we have now opened up bookings for the 28 September exam. Otherwise, you are also able to register your interest for the February 2021 exam below.
Candidates can sit the exams remotely. By proceeding with the online exam, candidates agree to sit the exam under an honest code of conduct as outlined by the IPA in the Examination Honour Code. Should candidates engage in any activity that could result in gaining an unfair advantage, before, during or after the exam you understand that you risk disqualification.
For individuals based in the UK with less than a year's experience in an advertising, marketing or communications role.
From recent graduates in their first year to young professionals just starting out or people entering the industry from another profession.
Date: Monday 22 February 2021
Location: Examination centers across the UK. Please note, a location will need to have at least 10 candidates for us to proceed with the exam at that location.
