LTC-CIP: Recertification by Infection Prevention Units
All currently certified LTC-CIP professionals in infection prevention and control are eligible for recertification during the year their certification is due to expire. Continuing education credits, hereby referred to as Infection Prevention Units (IPUs), can be achieved through a variety of activities including presenting at conferences, authoring publications, furthering academic education, attending local or national conferences, participating in a professional organization in a position of leadership, conducting research specific to the field of infection prevention, and teaching topics related to infection prevention. Relevant qualifying activities may be eligible for IPUs if they occurred within the five years prior to the recertification deadline. A minimum of 40 units must be documented and submitted in the candidate’s recertification year; documentation will only be accepted electronically via CBIC’s online portfolio system.
