Updated Eligibility Requirements

CBIC routinely evaluates CIC® eligibility requirements. This is done by regularly monitoring trends found among qualifications in CBIC’s pool of applicants and in the event any common questions or concerns are raised among certificants or prospects regarding the eligibility criteria. As of June 1, 2021, there are revised eligibility requirements for CIC® Initial Certification and for Lapsed Certificants. It is highly recommended you review all the eligibility requirements prior to applying.

Review the new requirements.

Updated CIC® Testing Timeline

Before the revised CIC® exam is released, beta testers who meet the eligibility requirements must take the exam to set the new cut, or passing, score. CBIC needs your help in this final essential process! All beta testers will receive a $100 discount off of the regular $375 price. The beta test application is now open for the August-September testing window. Once applications are approved, beta testers must complete the exam by September 30, 2021. There will be no CIC® examination available from October 2021-December 2021.
