About the CIP Credential
As part of our commitment to helping professionals improve human subject protections, PRIM&R is proud to offer the Certified IRB Professional (CIP®), a certification initiative for individuals working with IRBs. The CIP® credential was developed in 1999 to promote ethical research practices and programs by ensuring that professionals charged with their administration have demonstrated an advanced level of knowledge, understanding, and experience. More than 3,000 individuals have become certified since it was first introduced.
Those interested in seeking the CIP credential must meet the eligibility requirements and then apply for and pass the CIP exam. CIP credential holders must recertify every three years.
