IPEd Exam Prep Session
Thursday, 20 September 2012, 6:30pm for 7:00pm
CQ Functions, 113 Queen St, Melbourne CBD
Preparing to sit the Institute for Professional Editors (IPEd) accreditation exam on 13 October? Come along to this workshop dinner meeting, which will cover what the exam involves, how to prepare for it and how it will be marked.
Working in small groups facilitated by Accredited Editors who have passed previous exams, you'll be able to discuss insights and strategies for preparation with other candiates. To get the most out of the evening, you should take at least one of the sample exams available on the IPEd website under exam conditions.
The evening will be hosted by Kath Harper and Susan Keogh, Editors Victoria's delegates to the IPEd Accreditation Board. If you have any questions about accreditation, please email them.
Please note that registration for the IPEd exam closes on 14 September.
