What to Expect After Submitting Your Portfolio
The entire application process can take up to 30 days from date of receipt. Please allow 30 days after submitting your professional portfolio before contacting CBIC.
Once your professional portfolio has been reviewed, you will receive an email indicating whether or not your portfolio units met the prescribed criteria.
Revisions and Resubmissions
Revisions to your original portfolio will be allowed and you will have the chance to resubmit it for further review if it is not approved initially. You will receive an email notification for revision requests along with information on what activities were not accepted and why. Instructions on how to update your portfolio will be included in that communication. If you do not respond to the resubmission request, your portfolio will not be accepted and you will need to recertify using the proctored in-person examination. There is a limit of TWO revisions and resubmissions. If after the second and final revision your portfolio is not approved, you must recertify by taking the proctored recertification examination to maintain your CIC® status.
