CERTIFICATE OF PROFICIENCY IN INSOLVENCY (CPI)
The Insolvency Practitioners Association (IPA) offers an established intermediate examination, the Certificate of Proficiency in Insolvency (CPI) for those specialising in insolvency. It is ideal preparation for JIE, with its combination of multiple choice and full written exam questions, and is used by many as a stepping stone to the higher qualification. The examination is a test of competence in insolvency, and CPI is widely recognised by employers as an established mark of achievement. It covers both personal and corporate insolvency.

CPI can lead to membership of the IPA and to entitlement to use its designatory letters MIPA. A separate Certificate of Proficiency in Personal Insolvency (CPPI) covers personal insolvency issues and is set at the same standard as is the (CPCI) which covers the corporate sector. It is primarily for those specialising in the personal insolvency sector.

The CPI CPPI & CPCI are designed for individuals who are working in or have an interest in insolvency, whether or not intending to become licensed insolvency practitioners. The examinations are held in June and December each year and the deadline for student registration is 31st March for the June sitting and the 31st of October for the December sitting.

The IPA also offers a CPI+ course. The CPI+ consists of 6 hours of structured CPE. The course will focus on practical and skills-based topics, with a pervasive theme of ethical considerations and it is aimed primarily at case managers and administrators who are involved in the conduct of cases on a day-to-day basis.
