Certification Foundation Test Center Exam

Please note that on March 7, 2014, The Certification Foundation exam will become a 100-minute, 105 item objective test. The test will include 90 scored items and 15 non-scored trial items. If you plan to schedule your exam on or after that date, please make sure to take into account the new length of the exam. 

The Certification Foundation covers fundamental concepts of privacy and data protection from a global perspective, and successful completion of this exam is required for certification candidates seeking any CIPP designation.
 

The IAPP offers test center examinations with computer-based delivery through Kryterion's High-stakes Online Secured Testing (HOST) locations, which includes hundreds of testing centers around the world. Following payment of examination fees through the IAPP website, you will be directed to Kryterion's website for HOST location and exam date and time selection.

Exams are offered year round. Date and time availability varies depending on HOST center location, and candidates are encouraged to register as early as possible to guarantee a seat.  Please note that testing centers may only have dates available within 90 days in advance of the current date.

You are allowed 90 minutes to complete the Certification Foundation exam. If you are also registering for a designation exam, both exams can be purchased in one transaction but scheduled separately. If you are taking both exams on the same day at a Kryterion HOST location, you will need to allow 90 minutes for the Certification Foundation and 70 minutes for the designation exam.
 

NOTE: If you require special accommodations because of a qualifying disability, you must submit an Exam Accommodations Request, complete with documentation, at least 30 days in advance of the date you wish to test. Please do not schedule a test center exam session until your request has been approved by the IAPP.
