Where can I prepare for a CIOL Qualifications exam?

  • CIOL Qualifications is an Awarding Organisation that creates and runs its own language exams, all of which are externally set and externally marked without any input from external centres.
  • CIOL Qualifications does not run taught preparation courses for any qualifications.
  • However, other organisations separate from CIOL Qualifications do run taught preparation courses. These are listed for each exam in the other tabs on this page.
  • These course providers have not been inspected for the quality of their course provision.
  • CIOL Qualifications does not officially endorse or recommend any particular course.

Where can I sit a CIOL Qualifications exam?

  • CIOL Qualifications runs the CIOLQ Virtual Centre, which means candidates can sit the exam online in the comfort of their own home. 
  • In addition, other organisations separate from CIOL Qualifications are registered as exam venues, at which candidates can sit DipTrans, DPSI and DPI exams. These are also listed for each exam in the other tabs on this page.
  • Candidates must contact their chosen exam venue directly to confirm availability of space and facilities. 
  • Exam venues independently determine the fees they charge.

Preparation course providers are independent and CIOL Qualifications does not endorse, recommend or monitor preparation courses listed.

If you wish to register for an exam without attending a preparation course, it is possible to sit the exam via the CIOLQ Virtual Centre (online only) or at an exam venue which accepts external candidates. Candidates must contact the exam venue to confirm availability of space, facilities and to request confirmation of arrangements.
