IPA Learning

We are delighted to launch IPA Learning; our new learning partnership, providing members and their teams with training and learning opportunities.

The IPA has partnered with ISS Training to develop six initial training courses, covering current and emerging technical and regulatory issues. Designed with a clear focus on the practical application of new practise as change impacts your business, the workshops will be an opportunity to interact with the IPA, as well as inform and develop working practices across the profession.

We will be working with specially chosen partners and professionals to deliver an up-to-date, quality training programme throughout the year.
