Face-to-Face Courses

Energetic Face-to-Face Learning

At NTI we passionately believe there is no substitute for being in a training room with people; sharing experiences, delivering energetic training, answering questions, setting up impromptu Q&A sessions and inspiring people to understand and learn.

We have designed a dynamic suite of five courses that cover all of the basics of technical and practical insolvency, dealing with the real, on-the-job challenges that happen every day.

These training courses are ideal for those who are new to the profession, changing jobs within the business or preparing for the ICAEW’s CII exam or the IPA’s CPI exam.

Each of the five courses include:

  • Real insolvency documents and practical exercises to help delegates understand what working in the insolvency industry entails
  • A focus on the skills new starters and junior team members need to work in insolvency, clearly explaining the basics like inputting creditor claims, case diaries, checklists, cashiering, time recording and more
  • The opportunity to ask questions, seeking out the relevant and the practical
  • Materials for the students to take away and use in their daily roles as a reminder and reference point
