Prices and ordering

All course materials should be ordered through the online  SI-Shop. Non-members may order Module A only. Students already enrolled on the training course need to be logged into the members’ area of the website before ordering items.

The price for each module includes the cost of the test. The tests are divided into two parts, Theory and Practice; if you do not reach pass standard at the first attempt you will be able to resit just the part which you have failed.

Module A

You need to be a member of the Society, or a member of an affiliated indexing society, to register for the training course.

Non-members may purchase Module A and have access to the training course website for one month while they decide whether to proceed with the course. Please note, however, that some resource material on the website is available to SI members only. After one month you must become a member of SI to continue accessing the training course site and also to apply for the first test at a time acceptable to you.

No refund will be given on the module cost for anyone who decides not to proceed with the course.

If you want more information on Module A before purchase, you can download a sample extract, including full contents pages, here.

You can purchase Module A through the SI-Shop. By purchasing Module A, you confirm that you have read, understand and agree to the rules set out above. 

We require up to 2 working days to process your request and will then send an acknowledgement email with details of how to access the training course.
