Important information for CIR and ICIR candidates

We will soon be releasing an updated version of our CIR and ICIR Study Guides (January 2020)

The CIR and ICIR Study guide has been brought up to date with the latest information and looks at topics such as the practical aspects of the IR role and the equity markets; its contribution to the corporate profile and reputation; and the equity markets on which that company is listed. There are a number of key technical sections, covering legal and governance, regulatory, accounting and reporting obligations.  We also have a section on ESG and on consensus management, which are increasingly a focus by companies and shareholders alike, as well as updates on recent regulation and best practice.

The IR Society offers specific courses on regulation and accounting as well as a specific CIR revision course to help you with your studies.

The exam for the CIR and ICIR lasts one hour and is made up of 60 multiple choice questions, testing you on a range of topics contained in this guide.

New & Existing candidates

If you are an existing CIR candidate and are currently studying “© Copyright IR Society November 2018 Version XIX” you will be able to sit your exam based on this study guide up until the end of March 2020.  The exam dates are on our website.
