Thank you for your interest in the Certified Identity Protection Advisor® (CIPA) designation. This application is for new registrations. Registered candidates who wish to request the online examination must email us to schedule the examination.
To qualify for CIPA certification, you must be a member of Identity Management Institute® (IMI), submit this application, and pay the required fees. If you are not currently a member of IMI, please submit the membership application after you submit the CIPA® application.
Upon receipt and pre-approval of your application, you will receive an online payment voucher for the appropriate membership and/or CIPA fees. This process is introduced to pre-approve applications prior to payments and avoid collection of credit card numbers on the applications. Upon receipt of your payment, you will be sent the study guide. You must request and complete the test within one (1) year after receiving the study guide. Your online test and password will be sent to you within one (1) business day after your request is received and you will have 24 hours to complete and submit the test.
