Candidate Handbook
This document will provide you with more detailed information on the enrolment process, learning resources, training courses, booking an exam, exam regulations and what happens after an exam - whether you are successful or unsuccessful. 


Guidance for Candidates
This document includes the philosophy behind the IAM qualifications, how they relate to asset management knowledge, understanding and practice, the scope of the individual topics which make up the compulsory modules for the examinations and the assessment protocols that are used to determine the awarding of a Certificate.

It is important that prospective candidates understand the scope of the topics covered by the examination modules to determine how much study and training they may need. The Guidance for Candidates also suggests a minimum reading list to prepare for the exams.
