The Investor Relations Society (IRS), Great Britain's professional body for corporate practitioners, has taken its first e-learning steps with the launch of an online qualification, developed in conjunction with Futuremedia PLC. The Certificate in Investor Relations, which aims to teach practitioners the ins and outs of their industry, uses an electronic exam to save on cost and to enable professionals across the country to take the qualification. As Natalie Evans, head of policy for the IRS, explains, 'If changes are required, we can administer them quickly and easily. Plus, we can analyze the relevancy of the exam via electronic feedback.'
