In response to an increased requirement for specialised investor relations training, the Australasian Investor Relations Association has launched a Certificate of Investor Relations course.

Derived from the 7 course modules delivered throughout Day 1 of AIRA's Diploma course, the Certificate course can be undertaken in one of two course delivery modes:

  • online by computer-based e-learning, allowing you to work through each module at your own pace in your own time; or
  • face-to-face training by attending the Day 1 program of AIRA’s Diploma of Investor Relations course.

On completion of the full 7 modules via either study option, students may elect to sit an online exam. On passing this exam individuals will be awarded with a Certficiate of Investor Relations by the Australasian Investor Relations Association and may use CertInvRel post-nominals.
