The Chartered Insurance Institute (CII) has announced the postponement of its written examinations amid the coronavirus outbreak.
The exam sittings, which were due to take place on 20, 21 and 22 April, have now been postponed until October.
The only exception to this postponement to sittings is R06 (financial planning practice) and AF7 (pension transfers), which are due to be held in July.
The CII has also cancelled all events planned for the second quarter of 2020, and is following government guidance on working from Home in London.
Sian Fisher, chief executive of the CII, said: “The CII takes seriously our role supporting you, your business and the members of the public you serve.
“We recognise these are unprecedented times for every profession. In the coming weeks, the CII, our local institutes and societies will produce virtual content to support CPD requirements during this period.”
He added: “We will continue to issue guidance to you in your vital role helping members of the public.
“The CII is also in contact with the government and regulators to keep our members updated with current guidelines. We will continue to be here to assist the profession during these challenging times.”
The CII said it will continue to monitor and review the exam situation in line with government guidance.
