After the enrollment validity expires, you will not have access to the course content and will not be able to take the exam. You will be granted two free attempts to pass a final exam within the enrollment period. You may choose to take your IATA exam online with remote supervision or an exam in one of IATA’s Exam Centers (where physical presence is required).
