CICP: Knowledge that Lasts a Lifetime

Historically, the CICP was a designation that required an annual recertification. But as the CICP is a designation earned through study and academic accomplishment, the FCIB Board of Advisors has requested that it become a lifetime designation with no recertification requirements beginning in 2012.

All past and present CICP holders, regardless of CICP status will be awarded a lifetime CICP designation. Lapsed CICP designations will be reinstated and all future CICP graduates will enjoy its advantages for life.
