Information About CBIC & the CIC® Exam

What is CBIC? The Certification Board of Infection Control & Epidemiology, Inc. (CBIC®) is a voluntary, autonomous, multidisciplinary board that provides direction for and administers the certification process for professionals in infection control and applied epidemiology. CBIC is independent and separate from any other infection control-related organization or association, but does collaborate with three partner organizations (APIC, IPAC, and IFIC) to help promote the importance of being certified in infection prevention and control (CIC®).

Testing Tips

  • The information on the identification you bring with you to the Prometric testing center for your examination appointment must match the information you provided on your application. If you applied using a different name, please contact CBIC at prior to your testing date.
  • A score report is generated upon completion of the initial certification examination and will be emailed to examinees by Prometric within one hour. A pass/fail indicator is generated immediately for the recertification examination.
  • Chrome or Mozilla Firefox are the recommended web browsers when taking the recertification examination. CBIC does not recommend using Internet Explorer.
