CBIC Practice Analysis, Beta Testing, and the Revised CIC® Exam
Before the revised CIC® exam is released, CBIC will need beta testers who meet the eligibility requirements to take the exam to set the new cut, or passing, score. All beta testers will receive a $100 discount off of the regular $375 price. The best test application is open through August 6, 2021. Once applications are approved, beta testers must complete the exam between August 2 - September 30, 2021. Test takers will receive the results of their exam later in the year and if a candidate is deemed passing, they will be CIC® certified. The content outline is a useful tool for course and curriculum preparation and to judge the relevance of topics to the content of the examination.
How does this affect you?
- If you are thinking of applying for the beta test, you have until August 6, 2021 to submit your application.
- If you already have an approved application or exam scheduled for the beta test, you must take the exam by September 30. Please note that you will not be able to request an extension.
- If you cannot find a testing date, you may need to cancel your eligibility to receive a partial refund of $195 or you will forfeit your full fees should you fail to schedule.
- If you are planning to test later in the year, there will be no CIC® examination available from October 2021-December 2021.
