CPI - Certificate of Proficiency in Insolvency (Scotland) 2025

Practical online training for CPI, which recognises experience in insolvency work or can be used as a step towards the JIE exam. Modules cover the Scottish exam syllabus.


CPI is a flexible qualification. It recognises the capabilities of staff who have several years’ experience in all types of insolvency or it can be used to provide a solid foundation for staff looking to develop their careers in 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 Membership of the IPA (MIPA).

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 revision sessions that cover all the areas of difficulty as identified by participants throughout the course of the training.


Our 2025 programme continues to run as online participative workshops.

Each online module comprises four online sessions timed as follows:

Session 1:   9.30am - 11.00am
Session 2: 11.15am - 12.45pm
Session 3:   1.45pm - 3.15pm
Session 4:   3.30pm - 5.00pm

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.


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.

Where appropriate, online sessions will be supplemented with pre-recorded webinars.
