ARITA Advanced Certification 
The specialist accreditation for restructuring and insolvency professionals.

ARITA Advanced Certification is a specialist accreditation for those building their career – or who want to advance their already established career – in restructuring, insolvency and turnaround.

Aimed at practitioners with at least three years of experience, this postgraduate level course provides future specialists in their fields with the expert knowledge and skills that are essential to make their careers successful and rewarding.

It provides optional pathways for those wishing to practice formal insolvency or concentrate on restructuring and turnaround.

ARITA Advanced Certification is delivered in partnership with the University of Technology Sydney (UTS), and is the only education pathway to becoming an ARITA Professional Member.

Who should attend

This course is for restructuring, insolvency and turnaround professionals who want to:

  • Accelerate their careers
  • Receive formal recognition for expertise in their area of practice
  • Apply to become Registered Trustees or Liquidators
  • Become professional members of ARITA.

Admission requirements

There are no prerequisites for this course. However, we recommend you have three years’ experience in restructuring, insolvency or turnaround before commencing the course.

You will also benefit from completing the Introduction to Insolvency Program (IIP) and Essential Skills courses before commencing ARITA Advanced Certification.

Course structure

Subjects

ARITA Advanced Certification comprises three subjects:

Each subject comprises two components: a UTS component and ARITA workshops (except Advanced Restructuring and Turnaround which has no workshops).

Attendance

The UTS component is delivered via online distance education so you don’t have to physically attend the UTS campus.

Workshops are offered in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide, Perth and Newcastle. If you live outside these cities you can complete the workshops online in an electronic classroom.

ARITA accreditation

On completion of the core subject and one elective ARITA will award you an Advanced Certificate in Insolvency or Restructuring and Turnaround.

You have the option to complete both the electives to receive dual certification i.e. an Advanced Certificate in Insolvency and Restructuring and Turnaround.

Please note: 
while completion of the ARITA Advanced Certification is a pre-requisite for ARITA Professional membership, completion by itself does not guarantee you will be accepted as an ARITA Professional Member at any time in the future. Check the Membership categories and requirements for more information.
