Important updates

The FDIS takes the welfare of our customers very seriously and has been following the Government guidance on the Coronavirus and have some important updates for you.

Whilst most Pearson VUE test centres have been open since June 2020 and have been operating in line with the Government Guidelines. This has in some cases been at a reduced capacity, to adhere to the social distancing guidelines set out by Government. Since June 2020, the majority of candidates have been able to sit their FDIS Diploma exam on the scheduled date. There have been some exams that have needed to be cancelled and rescheduled for a later date. We anticipate this may be affected further with some of the local lockdowns. In these cases, Pearson VUE will reschedule these exams, to the Pearson VUE virtual test centre, to reschedule at a later date. You will receive an automatic email from Pearson VUE, advising you that your exam has been rescheduled. The FDIS strongly recommend that you contact the Pearson VUE test centre, where your FDIS Diploma exam is scheduled to take place, one working day prior to the date of your exam, to check your exam is still going ahead.

All of our online training courses are available as normal, so it is a good opportunity for CPD to be updated.

Should you have any queries, please contact us, using our ‘contact us’ page and we will be happy to help.

About FDIS
