The key requisite in exam centre provision is that the centre is fit for purpose, delivering an experience that is conducive to the successful completion of exams. CII sets a budget each year which means that as a guide the average cost per candidate, per session should be approximately £10.00 per candidate for the venue only. In the majority of instances institutes are securing centres at or below this figure. In some instances we recognise that local circumstances are such that venues have to secured at a higher cost. If any Institute is seeking to change a venue please forward details with proposed costs to CII Customer Service before finalising any agreements.
