After you join, you get access to only a forum where other trainees are. They offer links to mystery shopping companies and an occasional anti piracy assignment. I completed one of these assignments and 5 months later still have not been paid.
I have written to IPIU via email since they do not have a physical address listed anywhere and only have a voicemail set up to refund my membership and pay me for the job I completed. They have never responded.
They are onfile with the BBB in Ontario and have been investigated. I have reported them to the Ca attorney general and the bbb.
IPIU sells badges to pi trainees which in the state of california you are not allowed to carry as a licensed pi. People pay hundreds of dollars to get links to mystery shopping sites and no real training.
