Accreditation exam

Approximately every two years, IPEd holds an Australia-wide accreditation exam designed to measure an editor’s competence against the benchmark of Australian Standards for Editing Practice. Editors who pass the three-hour exam are certified by the Accreditation Board and can use the postnominal AE (for ‘accredited editor’).

The exam is designed for editors with at least three years’ full-time editing experience or equivalent; it is not intended as an entry-level exam.

More details about the exam, including exam structure, sample exams and answer guides, are available at Accreditation exams on the IPEd website.

Next accreditation exam

The next accreditation exam (an onscreen exam) will be held on Saturday 25 June 2016.

More details are available on the IPEd website.
