How to become an ICAS JIEB student
Find out how to register as an ICAS JIEB student and become an ICAS licensed insolvency practitioner.
What are the Joint Insolvency Examination Board (JIEB) exams?
To become a licensed insolvency practitioner, you must first pass the JIEB exams.
The exams are held once a year, usually in November and comprise two papers:
- Corporate Insolvency
- Personal Insolvency
Each paper is 3 hours long with 1/2 an hour allowed for reading time.
Candidates need to pass each paper to be able to receive a full Insolvency licence. However, candidates only need to pass one examination to obtain a partial licence to specialise in either personal or corporate insolvency.
The JIEB exams are a demanding practical test of the knowledge and skills that insolvency practitioners use in their working lives.
Registering for the exams
To take the exams you must first register with one of the recognised professional bodies. When you want to enrol for JIEB training you can become a registered student with ICAS. You don’t have to be a Chartered Accountant Member, or be sponsored by a Member, to be a student.
All JIEB students are welcome to register with ICAS, irrespective of where in the UK you intend to attend courses or to sit the exams. There is no requirement to have an accountancy qualification, but if you do it does not have to be with ICAS.
