Frequently Asked Questions

What is certification?

Actual current practice in the field of infection prevention and control is required for initial certification. There is no minimum time requirement to be eligible to take the certification exam; however, it is written for a person who has actively practiced in the field for two years.

Please visit the CBIC website at www.cbic.org to view the details outlined in the candidate handbook. You may also contact CBIC directly at 913-541-0400 x4477. APIC also provides resources on our CIC Certification page to guide Infection Preventionists and other Healthcare professionals in the right direction.
