Description

CPI is a flexible qualification. It recognises the capabilities of staff who have several years’ experience in all types of insolvency. Alternatively, it can be used as an effective stepping stone towards the JIEB exam by candidates and their employers. On successful completion of the exam, candidates may apply for Affiliate Membership of the IPA (AIPA).

ISS Training’s modules have been designed to cover the Scottish exam syllabus and to offer essential guidance on the principal areas on which you will be tested. Participants are actively encouraged to ask questions and to discuss the syllabus with their tutor. Comprehensive study aids and course notes for each module will be provided.

The modules are continually updated for current legislation and best practice. The training is practical and participative, culminating in a mock exam and a revision session that covers all the areas of difficulty as identified by participants throughout the course of the training.

Modules

In light of current government guidance in relation to the COVID-19 pandemic, the modules leading to the June 2021 sitting will be conducted online as participative workshops.

Each module comprises four online sessions timed as follows:

One hour weekly study clubs / revision sessions will also be offered in the run up to the exam to suit candidates’ revision requirements, at a time agreed by candidates.

Materials

Hard copy material will be issued in advance of each module. Every student will be enrolled on our ISS Moodle School, and recordings of all sessions will be available after the event, including all material issued in conjunction with the module.

A bank of past paper questions is also accessible on Moodle for learning and revision purposes.

The Exam

The CPI exam is usually held on the Friday of first full week in June, and therefore likely to be 11 June 2021.
