How We Serve Professionals

Professional Development Courses and Certificate Programs

Professional Certification Exam Prep

IPEx offers exam prep training to prepare for specific professional certifications such as SHRM for the Human Resource professional, PMP or ACP certifications for Project Management professionals, CMA certification for accounting professionals, and CPC certification for health care professionals.

How We Serve the Corporate World

Customized Training

We develop programs to specifically match an organization’s needs. This can derive from a consulting engagement, be part of an ongoing HR training plan or revolve around special needs/training seen as essential for executives or upward “grooming”.

Critical Needs Consulting

Either on a specific need or complete overhaul, IPEx provides a team of subject matter experts (SMEs) to quickly assess the situation, develop an interim plan and deep dive into both the specific areas of need and the appropriate change management plan to make it stick.
