Recertification by Infection Prevention Units (IPUs) Overview
Recertification is required in order to maintain the CIC® designation. All currently certified (CIC®) professionals in infection prevention and control are eligible for recertification during the year that their certification is due to expire.
Recertifying candidates may recertify either by passing a web-based recertification examination or through continuing education, hereby referred to as Infection Prevention Units (IPUs).
You can accumulate IPUs at any point during your five-year recertification period. To make the process go smoothly, we have gathered some useful links as resources.
