The Foundation Certificate is a postgraduate certificate programme aimed at inexperienced or new entrants to the insolvency profession, especially in emerging market and developing jurisdictions. While the course is open for anyone to register, please note that the Foundation Certificate course is suitable for persons with less than five years' experience.
INSOL International aims to provide an affordable, easily accessible course for working practitioners that can be completed at a realistic pace with the use of modern technology. To this end, the course is presented entirely online and does not require registered candidates to travel anywhere in order to complete the course. This course was presented for the first time in 2019/20.
Foundation Certificate Course
The Foundation Certificate course is presented in one-year cycles between 1 September and 31 August each year and can be completed in one year, or over the course of two years, should candidates wish to pace themselves in the completion of the course.
Registered candidates are required to complete eight modules in order to obtain the certificate, three of which are compulsory modules and five of which are elective modules. For the elective modules candidates can choose from 35 jurisdictions in five regions across the globe and one general module on Ethics and Professional Practice. The prescribed materials for each of the modules have been prepared by experts in practice and academia, reflecting a wide pool of specialised expertise.
