Step by step instructions to verify certification:
online, via email or over the phone
CIC® Verification via Online
- Most current CICs are listed on the CBIC website.
- On the main page, towards the top left side, find the “About Us” tab. Hover over this tab. A drop down box will appear. Near the bottom of the dropdown menu, locate the “Find a CIC®” option and click on the words, or click here.
- This pulls up the primary CIC® Verification page. Here users can search the CIC® database in three ways:
- Browse: Allows users to see all of the CIC® certificants at a glance, sorted by name.
- Quick Search: Allows users to search by first or last name.
- Geographic Search: Allows users to search by city, state/province and/or country.
** Please be advised that certificants may choose to be excluded from the online directory. If a certificant states that they are certified but you are unable to find them on the directory, please contact CBIC office via email or phone to verify certification.
