Social Media Badges

We realize that passing your CIC® certification examination is a tremendous accomplishment and we want to give you a way to show it off! For this reason, CBIC has created CIC® Badges that allow CICs to display their credential on social media. Whether you are on Facebook or LinkedIn, email our Marketing & Communications Manager cwittenberg@cbic.org to display your badge proudly!
