Individual Accredited MIPA

The Accredited MIPA is an industry recognised IPA professional status for individuals that can demonstrate critical knowledge, skills and expertise as an Advertising professional.

We at the IPA, the organisation that supports the Advertising Industry, have developed a qualifications-based programme of learning - with the help of industry luminaries and marketing professionals from leading brands – that will ensure your knowledge is as broad or as focussed as you want it to be. Choose from a number of IPA courses and/or qualifications to earn the stars you need to qualify for MIPA status.
