The Certificate in IR (CIR) & International Certificate in IR (ICIR)

The Certificate in Investor Relations (CIR) & International Certificate in IR (ICIR) are internationally recognised qualifications for the investor relations profession. 

The qualifications allow successful candidates to demonstrate their knowledge of the financial and market environment and the regulatory and reporting requirements for listed companies and their sound understanding of the principles of investor relations, which will enable them to operate competently and safely. 

The CIR is a valuable benchmark for those already in the profession and an essential prerequisite for those seeking to work in investor relations. With 1,000 successful candidates from more than 25 countries, the CIR is firmly established as the leading IR qualification worldwide.

Obtaining the Certificate in IR:

   • Provides international recognition as a qualified IR practitioner
   • Demonstrates competence and growing expertise
   • Enhances career development

Who should sit the CIR?
It is suitable for anyone working in investor relations or related professions, or considering a move into investor relations, either in the UK or overseas.

The CIR is a self-study qualification based on the IR Society’s comprehensive CIR study guide. It is assessed by an examination comprising 60 multiple-choice questions, based on the topics set out in the syllabus.

The International Certificate in IR (ICIR)
We offer an international syllabus of the CIR which captures the essential elements common to international markets. The CIR currently runs in the UK, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Malaysia, the Middle East (CIRO), Nigeria, Russia, Singapore and Sri Lanka.
