CIP Spotlight: Devon McCollum is Serious About the Information Industry

Why choose certification? For me, it's about proof (to myself and to employers) of my expertise. The Certified Information Professional (CIP) started with a group of industry experts and focus groups that worked together to define the body of knowledge necessary for information professionals to be successful in the digital economy. From there, AIIM worked to build a certification exam based upon this body of knowledge - and the CIP was born.

CIP Exam Now Available in Online Proctored Format

At an AIIM-taught CIP prep course. Online proctored via Kryterion. Online proctoring has been available for years, but has sometimes suffered from confusion with online certificate programs and the perception that "it's just an online exam." I've shared that sentiment myself; at the same time, I completed about 35% of my bachelor's degree online in 2001, and in 2018 there are any number of programs including master's degree programs that are 100% online.
