Joint Insolvency Examination Board Training Programme for Insolvency Professionals

17 January 2019
Blended learning

The Joint Insolvency Examination Board (JIEB) examinations are a set of professional exams for those who want to become a licensed insolvency practitioner.

Recognised both inside and outside insolvency, the JIEB is your opportunity to lay the foundations for a career in one of the UK's most rewarding professions.

ICAS Professional Development provides an excellent study programme in partnership with BPP, to prepare you for the JIEB assessments. Our training programmes are delivered through a blended learning approach incorporating live interactive lectures as well as classroom-based teaching in Edinburgh. All our sessions are recorded, with opportunities to stream and watch any sessions you may have missed.

The Joint Insolvency Examination Board (JIEB) have announced that from 2018 onwards, there will only be one corporate paper and one personal insolvency paper with the exams taking place in November. The exams will also be computer-based and there is the introduction of a case study question in each paper. All candidates are required to apply for examinations through a Recognised Professional Body such as ICAS.

The Joint Insolvency Examination Board have indicated their intention to test the new Scottish rules for the 2019 sitting.

What you will learn?

Whilst this programme has been prepared with JIEB students in mind, it will also provide a valuable update on important subjects such as Money Laundering and EC Regulation, together with highlighting the key changes introduced by the Deregulation Act 2015, Small Business, Enterprise and Employment 2015, The Insolvency (Protection of Essential Supplies Order) 2015 and The Insolvency Practitioners (Amendment) Regulations 2015. It will also cover the new SIPs 1 & 16 and the new Insolvency (Scotland) Rules.

Who should attend?

This programme is tailored to those students intending on sitting one or both of the 2019 JIEB examinations.

About the exam

You can attempt two papers at one sitting, or split the papers over two years. The exam board have confirmed the papers will be 3 ½ hours each and will be computer based. You can decide whether to sit only one paper in which case you are eligible for a licence for corporate or personal appointments respectively.

You will also need to satisfy the practical requirements of your Recognised Professional Body (RPB) or the Department for Enterprise, Trade and Industry (DETI). Requirements can differ, so it's important to look into these before you start your studies. For more information visit the JIEB website
