Notes to editors:
The Foundation Certificate involves the completion of a comprehensive course, delivered online, followed by a two-hour examination. This took place in February 2016 in assessment centres around the UK.
Other industry body employees, such as those at D&AD and the IPA, also took the qualification.
Since its inception, 9,342 industry practitioners have passed the Foundation Certificate and over 11,000 people have passed an IPA qualification in the UK.
The Foundation Certificate has been taken in Australia, Asia, the USA and MENA and IPA qualifications have now been adopted globally across 60 countries.
All candidates who have undertaken the 2016 IPA Foundation Certificate will be invited to a party in July to celebrate in London, Manchester or Edinburgh. The IPA will also be paying tribute to them in the advertising press to coincide with the party.
