The mission of CBIC is to protect the public through the development, administration, and promotion of an accredited certification in infection prevention and control. CBIC maintains and promotes professional certification of the highest quality through the accomplishment of key objectives. With this mission in mind, CBIC has set a challenging goal of attaining 840 net new certificants each year in its strategic plan. You can track the progress of this goal in the infographic on the previous page. You can help us and your profession by encouraging your colleagues, employees, members and other Infection Prevention and Control Professionals to become certified. You can find ways to show your support and encourage certification below:
Many Infection Prevention and Control Professionals have inquired about being mentored before taking their CIC® examination. While CBIC does not offer a mentorship program at this time for non-certified individuals, we encourage others to mentor colleagues or even start a mentorship program within your chapter or organization.
The CIC® Facilitator Resource Toolkit was developed by CBIC to help APIC and IPAC Canada Chapters, State HAI Programs, hospital systems and other groups who support certification in infection prevention and control (CIC®) with their certification efforts. This toolkit contains everything from a pre-scripted presentation, to template letters to use to request support from your supervisor or your foundation, to ideas for meetings, study groups, and other ways to help promote certification. You can view the individual components of the toolkit below or download the full toolkit here.
CBIC works with several organizations who support certification in infection prevention and control (CIC®).
