The CIRA course of study and examination is divided into three parts. Candidates may register for one or more parts in any location or series of courses that are offered. It is recommended that Part 1 be taken before Part 2; however, Part 3 may be taken before the other parts. Each part consists of a two and one-half-day course comprising two days of review and a three-hour examination on the last half day. The course level is intermediate. Each of the three parts involves advance preparation of at least 10-15 hours reading and studying the course materials and answering review questions. Course materials are mailed one month prior to the course.
Overview of Objectives
The CIRA course of study is comprehensive and advanced. Through successful completion of the three-part course of study and uniform written examination (see detail for Course and Examination Parts 1-3 below), candidates will achieve and demonstrate the proficiency necessary to:
Managing Turnaround and Bankruptcy Cases

A full refund (if materials sent to you in advance of the course are returned) or full credit toward future enrollment will be allowed if notice of cancellation is received at least 10 business days before the start of the course. If notice of cancellation is received 3 to 9 business days in advance, credit toward a future course will be allowed minus a $75 service charge per part. Cancellations less than 3 business days in advance result in a service charge of $150 per part.
Twenty CPE credits are available for each part of the course of study, Parts 1, 2 and 3.
If an applicant fails to pass an examination, it may be retaken with another section of the course and examination for $200, or separately, without the course, for $75. The fee for any proctored exam is $75.
