In 2021 the IPA has adapted its longest running qualification, so it can run according to Covid-19 restrictions. Two thirds of the programme will run remotely via Zoom, the third and final module and exam will take place later in the year face to face at the IPA offices in Belgrave Square – these dates are TBC (Covid-19 restrictions permitting). We will ensure all delegates can attend or worst case scenario create a new third module that can run differently if the situation in the UK does not ease as expected.
The course still encompasses all types of production taking junior producers and production assistants through the entire production process. We have also adapted the content to ensure we cover the greater complexities in production caused by the Covid-19 pandemic.
Completing the course will result in delegates being awarded the IPA Production Essentials Certificate and 3 MIPA Stars (please see more details on MIPA accreditation).
Please note applications have now closed for the 2021 Intake. If you would like to keep up-to-date with further information on future intakes, please register your interest.
