About the IAPP Certification Programs

We live in an information economy. And as data becomes today’s most valuable currency, the risk associated with it continues to skyrocket. Professionals who understand these risks—and the global information management practices needed to safeguard data—are in high demand. That’s where certification from the International Association of Privacy Professionals (IAPP) comes in.

The IAPP offers information privacy certification programs specifically designed for professionals who manage, handle and access data, and are recognized and respected by employers the world over.

The following webinar shares some insight into the various certifications:

How CLIC Can Help

CLIC will forward the names of interested students to the IAPP. The IAPP team will work on the back-end to adjust your course registration to the discounted rate. Once you pay for the materials and pass the CIPP exam, you can submit your receipt to CLIC for reimbursement. To begin, you must confirm your interest.

CLIC’s Reimbursement Program

CLIC is currently offering a reimbursement to students who successfully complete the exam. Each student who participates in the IAPP program will receive a discounted rate and gain access to benefits for much less than the full retail value (currently $1,700), if they notify CLIC

Benefits include:

  • One-year (twelve months) IAPP student membership
  • Complete access to IAPP online training and any appropriate e-books for the selected certification (CIPP/US, CIPP/E, CIPM, or CIPT) during the membership year
  • One Computer-based exam voucher appropriate for the selected certification

Note: Should you need to retake the exam, you can purchase one retake during your membership year. Students must contact IAPP to receive the special discount for the first retake. Second retakes, additional certification exams, and any designation sought during or after the Privacy Pathways membership year are full price. To receive a reimbursement of all registration and exam materials, you will need to send a proof of exam passage with detailed receipts to CLIC at any point during the one year after you’ve initially registered.

If you’re interested, fill out the following registration form, and CLIC will pass your information onto the IAPP:
