Advanced Insolvency is an elective subject in ARITA’s Advanced Certification.

This subject ensures a solid understanding of Australia’s formal insolvency regime for both corporates and individuals as well as building an understanding of the complicated issue of insolvency and trusts.

This subject will meet the specialist insolvency education requirements to become a registered liquidator or registered trustee.

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


  • The context of corporate and personal insolvency
  • Liquidations, including the new streamlined liquidation process
  • Bankruptcy, Personal Insolvency Agreements and Debt Agreements
  • Receiverships
  • Insolvency and trusts


You must satisfy at least one of the below prerequisites to enrol in this subject:

  1. ARITA Advanced Certification: Fundamentals of Restructuring, Insolvency and Turnaround.

       2. If you’ve completed the Insolvency Education Program (IEP) you will be deemed to have passed both Fundamentals of Restructuring, Insolvency and Turnaround and Advanced Insolvency subjects. You can enrol in this subject as a refresher.
Note: 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.


There are 2 components that make up the Fundamentals of Restructuring, Insolvency and Turnaround subject – the UTS component and ARITA workshops.

You must pass both the UTS component and ARITA workshops to pass the subject.

  • Take home exam (compulsory pass component) 

There will be self-review (non-assessable) quiz questions posted online though the course.

  • Submitted written answers
  • Participation in online workshops
  • Marked written answers (if workshop not attended)

Information about enrolling

Enrolment and cancellation policies


Double your credentials

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

Most of our dual certification students accomplish their first certification by completing the core subject and one elective, and then return to study the second elective the following year.

Whilst you can choose to do both electives at the same time (except in 2022), we recommend that you should carefully review the program outlines for the two electives to consider the study load in relation to your personal circumstances.

It is also important to note that the study load of taking both electives together will not be considered by UTS as valid grounds to request extensions to assessment deadlines.

Please note: we will not run the elective Advanced Restructuring and Turnaround in 2022, enrolments for 2023 open May 2023.
