Multiple Choice Exam

You will be required to complete a 1-hour, open-book online multiple choice test.

The assessments run on a monthly basis, and you will be given a 28-day window of submission, typically the 1-28th of the month.  You will be provided login details directly from IEMA by email, the day before your submission window begins.  You can login anytime during this window to complete the test, however this must be completed in one sitting.  Results are shown immediately after completion.
