IEMA is to host a live webinar and webchat on 29 June to share more information on the new Associate exam format and how to apply

The new Associate entry exam has now been online since May. Many of the first candidates to have taken the 2.5-hour exam will have already received their results and, if they have passed, confirmation of their Associate status.

If you are interested in seeing how the Associate exam works, you can view a new step-by-step video guide, lasting six minutes, that takes you from log-in to the submission of your answers.

In addition to the video, IEMA is also hosting a webinar on the revised Associate standard and the new online exam. The webinar will go live at 12 noon on Friday 29 June.

IEMA’s chief examiner, Helen Manns, will take participants through the new additions to the standard, explaining how a candidate should demonstrate that they meet the Associate criteria and specification.

She will also give an overview of the online exam and outline some examples of suitable answers – the kind that her team of assessors will be looking for from candidates.

Straight after the webinar – between 1pm and 2pm – a live webchat will take place on the IEMA LinkedIn group page.

Here, questions can be posted about the standard and the exam, as well as the support and guidance available to IEMA members. Manns will be on hand alongside members of the IEMA team to answer any queries.

You can book your place on this first Associate exam webinar on IEMA's website.

To post your questions – either before the webinar or during the live webchat – head to the IEMA LinkedIn group page and look for the discussion entitled: “What do you want to know about becoming an Associate?”

If the convenience of the online exam and/or the swift turnaround of results inspire you to upgrade your membership from Student, Graduate or Affiliate to the internationally recognised Associate level, then why not contact IEMA’s professional development adviser, Victoria Douch. She can offer some one-to-one guidance and support as you seek to move up the membership ladder.
