The IPA Advanced Certificate - Global

CPD Value: 45 Hours

MIPA Accreditation: 4 stars

#GetAdvanced in a Nutshell

Based on the immensely popular IPA publication on communication campaigns  – A Best Practice Guide to Developing Communications Strategy, the IPA Advanced Certificate is an ideal training investment for professionals, in either agency or client organisations, who are looking to expand their understanding of the progressively complex media world they operate in. This course is designed for individuals to take advantage of, not only the practices, sources and resources of these senior agency practitioners, but, most crucially, their views and experience.


This is for you if...

You have between 4 - 9 years of industry experience and wish to improve your understanding of communications and channel planning.

"For me the real value of the course was the ongoing effect it has had on my own learning path and my confidence. I can’t tell you the number of client meetings or catch-ups with colleagues where I have been able to speak with real confidence or pepper the conversation with anecdotes and facts taken from my course."

- Luke McGann, Comms Strategist, AMS Group



To gain the IPA Advanced Certificate, delegates must complete approximately 45 hours of online learning, divided into 5 modules, over 7 months, completing 5 assessments.
