Early-bird registrations will close on Sunday 2 June and all registrations will close on Friday 12 July 2024.
The information below is provided for general guidance. Candidates are warned that registration policy for the 2024 exam may differ in some respects.
The 2022 accreditation exam is open to all IPEd members and members of affiliate editing organisations. Affiliate members will be asked for their membership details, which we will verify with your organisation.
Non-members wishing to sit the exam must first join IPEd in the appropriate membership category.
First-time candidates must pay either the early-bird full fee or the standard full fee by the relevant closing date.
Candidates who are resitting the exam must indicate in the registration form which exam they sat previously, and pay either the early-bird resit fee or the standard resit fee by the relevant closing date. We will check your eligibility for the resit fee (only one resit at the reduced rate is allowed). If you have already resat the exam at a reduced rate, you will be asked to pay the difference to make up the full fee at either the early-bird or standard rate depending on date of payment.
Registration is not complete until you have BOTH:
- completed the registration form, AND
