About this event

The Cert IPSAS learning materials consist of a series of online topic areas accompanied by interactive workbooks. The course takes approximately 100 hours to complete and trainees are encouraged to study at their own pace via CIPFA’s virtual learning environment.

There is no formal examination at the Certificate level, with understanding and knowledge evaluated through self-test questions at the end of each topic area. On successful completion, trainees are awarded the CIPFA Certificate in IPSAS and can then progress to the Diploma in IPSAS.
