Information About CBIC & the CIC, a-IPC and Long-Term Care Examinations

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®). CBIC also develops the a-IPC and Long- Term Care examinations.

Testing Tips

  • The first and last name on the identification you bring with you to the Prometric testing center or show during check-in at for your Pro Proctor appointment must match the information you provided on your application. If you applied using a different name, please contact CBIC at        at least five business days prior to your testing date for all CBIC examinations.
  • 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.
  • Google Chrome is the required web browser for your ProProctor web application exam to run.
  • Chrome or Mozilla Firefox are the recommended web browsers when taking the recertification examination. CBIC does not recommend using Internet Explorer.
  • Mac Ventura User Please note:

    • The recent MacOS Ventura update disables critical security protocols in ProProctor.

    • We will not support Ventura until we have resolved these security issues - timeline is TBD until we understand full scope of security gaps.

    • We have updated the system requirements in the User Guide and on to ensure candidates are aware that Ventura is not currently supported

    • Help Desk has been trained to support impacted candidates.”
