Exam centres

The CII would like to express thanks to the local institute network for assisting us over the years in delivering written examinations to our learners and members. We have changed our assessment provider to PSI which will allow us to realise our objective of improving the learner experience using cutting-edge technology in the UK and internationally. From October 2020 the CII are planning to move all exams to PSI centres. We can provide confirmation of the venues being used six weeks before the exams. In as far as possible this will mirror the towns and cities used previously. This means that from October 2020 onwards we will no longer be using local exam centres as PSI will provide these and the invigilators. PSI vets all exam centres to ensure they meet high standards and to ensure they are fit for purpose.
