To become accredited for probate, you will first need to undertake relevant training and pass an assessment (unless exempt) before submitting an application form to ICAEW and paying the appropriate fee.
Our Certificate in Probate and Estate Administration involves attending a training course and then sitting a separate assessment. Please note that you must have attended our training course before you can sit the assessment. Both the course and assessment are now available to complete online. For details of each and to book, click a link below.
The course is available Face to Face and runs over two days, it is also available to attend online via Mercia Live and runs over 4 half days. There is also an On-demand service which consists of 4 x 3 hour sessions.
The courses and assessments are held on different dates and you will need to book onto both separately if you wish to obtain the certificate.
The assessment is taken in strict examination conditions, lasts 2 hours and will be a mixture of short questions and multiple choice questions. The required pass mark is 50%. Certificates will be issued approximately 4 weeks after the assessment.
The assessment is now only available online.
