Certified Profit Enhancement Consultant (CPEC) Designation Introduced By Institute Of Profit Advisors

The Institute of Profit Advisors (IPA), a national organization dedicated to the process of improving business profits, has begun offering a Certified Profit Enhancement Consultant (CPEC) professional designation to its qualified members.

The CPEC designation was developed by IPA to meet the increased demand for qualified profit enhancement counselors. IPA members, also known as Profit Coaches, employ a profit enhancement process (PEP) program throughout the organization to help increase profits and company asset value.

To obtain CPEC certification, candidates are required to successfully complete profit enhancement training, including the PEP program, as well as have practical experience in applying the concepts. PEP is a specialized program designed to teach profit coaches how to increase the bottom line. To retain CPEC status, members must attend continuing education programs through IPA's affiliate, the Practice Development Institute, Inc. (PDI).

Founded in 1994, the IPA membership currently includes more than 140 profit coaches representing nearly 70 accounting and consulting firms nationwide. More information can be obtained at (312) 541-2524 or *
