IPW announce August events
With exclusive training courses and accreditation opportunities, August is set to be another busy month for members of the Institute of Professional Willwriters.
As well as providing will writers with a reputable accreditation to demonstrate a high level of expertise, the IPW regularly hold high-quality training courses for all professionals involved in wills and probate.
All IPW training is provided by the Willwriting Academy Limited who have recently been accredited as a formal provider of Continuing Professional Development (CPD) by the CPD Standards Office.
