Advanced Restructuring and Turnaround

Advanced Restructuring and Turnaround is an elective subject in ARITA’s Advanced Certification.

This subject covers all operational aspects of restructuring and turnaround, enabling students to develop skills applicable to restructuring assignments both within and outside a formal insolvency appointment.

This subject will not meet the specialist insolvency education requirements to become a registered liquidator or registered trustee. You will need to complete Advanced Insolvency.

The subject is offered in the second half of each year (session 2).


  1. Fundamentals of Restructuring, Insolvency and Turnaround

  2. If you’ve completed the Insolvency Education Program (IEP) you will be deemed to have passed Fundamentals of Restructuring, Insolvency and Turnaround. There is no time limit for recognition of prior completion of the IEP if you can show continuing professional development in insolvency, restructuring or turnaround in the intervening period.

  3. If you’ve obtained ARITA professional membership without completing the IEP and remain as a Professional Member, you are deemed to have fulfilled the prerequisites for this subject. Any deemed satisfaction of pre-requisite requirements by ARITA is not binding on UTS in respect of any further studies.
