If you cannot attend a live course, you can now gain access to a video streaming version of the same program.
- You will have access to the courses for six months — schedule your time and the exam accordingly
- A minimum of 300k bandwidth is needed to view the streaming videos
- Streamed video is viewed directly as the file is furnished to you. If you have a poor internet connection you can have hesitations in the stream and poor viewing quality
- You will need to check for potential firewall issues which would cause connection issues to the videos
The Distance Learning option provides you:
Training on demand: No matter what your time zone, you can access any of the courses at your convenience.
Course materials: You receive access to the web streaming videos and details for downloading materials for each of the courses (e.g. Harvard Business School cases) which you will print out.
*Please note: Students who attend the live Academy courses, OR have registered for the distance learning option on the Web are eligible for the CIP™ certification.
Certification exams CIP™-I and CIP™-II: To earn the CIP™-I core and CIP™-II advanced level of certification you would need to complete the required number of courses for each level and pass an exam for each level.
CIP™-I level certification requires completion of courses CI 101®, CI 202®, CI 301, CI 302, CI 303. Once you have completed these courses you would be eligible to take the exam.
CIP™-II level certification requires completion of courses CI 401, CI 402, CI 403, CI 404 and CIP™-I certification. You cannot receive the CIP™-II certification without first receiving the CIP™-I certification.
The exam fee for each level is $150.00. The exam is a 50 multiple choice question exam which you would take online. You would be sent a login and a password to the URL. The passing grade is 75. Once you have logged in, you will see that you have 14 days to complete the exam. Once you have completed the exam you will be able to see your score right away. You are able to stop and resume when you would like within that 14 day window. The answers are automatically saved.
For those colleagues who are taking online courses, your access to the online courses will no longer be active while taking the exam(s). The examinations are only offered at set times during the year.
For 2013 the exams will be scheduled for:
March 21, 2013
