Structure of the Professional Program
The PPP includes pre-reading and two assessments throughout the webinar. To pass the PPP attendees must successfully complete both assessments and attend a minimum of five of the six webinars live, unless there are extraordinary circumstances.
We recommend that participants allocate up to 80 hours to complete the self-paced study component, however, this will depend on prior learning and work experience. It is recommended that this component is completed prior to attending the webinars.
The workshop component of the PPP consists of 13 separate modules that can be used independently as a reference tool for members in public practice or working in the corporate sector.

Competency Area 2: Management and Professional Skills
Participants will be required to consolidate their knowledge through two multiple-choice assessments, consisting of 15 questions each. Participants will be given 30 minutes to complete each assessment. If you do not successfully complete your assessment, you will be offered an opportunity to re-sit the competency assessment at an additional cost. If you are still unsuccessful, you will be required to repeat the Professional Practice Program and successfully pass the assessment. The IPA reserves the right to cancel a member’s PPC in the event a member does not pass the assessment.
