Multiple Choice Assessment
The IEMA Foundation Certificate is assessed with a 1-hour, open-book online multiple choice assessment. This is completed online on the IEMA assessment portal.
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.
Please note: If you are studying in a classroom, virtual course or on-site through your company, you will be registered for the next available assessment window as part of your course, and will be given your deadline date accordingly.
Successful completion also entitles you to Associate Membership of IEMA (AIEMA), and your first year membership is included in the course cost.
You will also receive an IEMA Certificate through the post, and this can take 6-10 weeks to arrive.
