The CILA Advanced Diploma examinations can be sat at one of the following locations:
At a Pearson Vue test centre
Pearson Vue test centres are located throughout the world and you can find your nearest test centre by visiting the Pearson Vue website at: http://www.pearsonvue.com/cila/ If a test centre is not available in your country, please contact the Institute at for further assistance.

At home or in your office.
Pearson Vue also offer the option to sit a CILA examination at home or in your office using an online invigilation service called OnVUE. An online invigilator will observe and monitor your exam through specialist software and the webcam and microphone on your computer.
We recommend that you familiarise yourself with the OnVUE system requirements, policies and procedures before selecting this method of examination. Detailed information can be found on the Pearson Vue website at: http://www.pearsonvue.com/cila/
