Accredited editors have demonstrated their professional competence and understanding of editing standards, skills and knowledge by passing the IPEd accreditation exam.

The exam is administered by IPEd’s Accreditation Board and is designed to measure an editor’s competence against the benchmark of the Australian standards for editing practice.

Accredited editors may use the postnominal AE.

Accreditation is valid for five years. Renewal of accreditation requires AEs to provide evidence of their continuing involvement in the profession and their participation in professional development.

The last exam was held on 19 May 2018. The next exam date is yet to be announced.
