CIPM Test Center Exam

Please note that on March 7, 2014, the CIPM exam will become an 80-minute, 57-item objective test. The test will include 45 scored items and 12 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 Certified Information Privacy Manager (CIPM) exam assesses understanding of the skills to establish, maintain and manage a privacy program across all stages of its operational life cycle. First time candidates for the CIPM designation must also pass the Certification Foundation exam in order to obtain the CIPM credential. Existing CIPPs do not need to take the Foundation exam. You must be an IAPP member in order to register for a CIPM exam.

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 80 minutes to complete the CIPM exam. If you are also registering for the Certification Foundation 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 80 minutes for the CIPM 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.
