What is the iP Institute?

About the Incident Prevention Institute

From the creators of Incident Prevention magazine, the Incident Prevention Institute (iPi) exists to provide professional development opportunities to those in the utility industry. It features a wide range of educational products that have been developed by those who have years of experience dealing with the unique safety challenges faced by utilities. You can choose from an online learning course, an online live webinar, or have the course delivered directly to your LMS.

Online Education

We know that utility professionals are being asked to work more hours and to do more with less. Our online education offers a convenient solution to help you learn year round when and where is convenient for you.

CUSP Exam Preparation

Currently, the iP Institute offers an Online Prep course for the Certified Utility Safety Professional (CUSP) exam. It is a self-paced course designed to enhance test-taking skills and help learners to prepare for the CUSP exam. The CUSP certification program is the only program that offers safety credentials to utilities, related contractors and communication providers.

Onsite Education

Powered by Frontline, our onsite education is designed around the concept that with the right tools, knowledge and insight, anybody—regardless of their position or experience—can be a safety leader. Through the use of interactive classroom learning delivered by utility safety experts, the onsite courses provide an enriching and engaging learning experience that inspires employees to want to achieve greater safety success.


Assessments work by introducing scientific measurements to someone’s critical thinking skills, motivations, potential skill proficiencies, work styles, behavioral characteristics and personal values. Each assessment takes less than 10 minutes for an individual to complete, but provide organizational leaders with a wealth of measurable and actionable profile data.
