CPIA Job Analysis Survey

Complete the CPIA Job Analysis Survey!

The CPIA Job Analysis Survey gives those responsible for IACUC administrative functions the opportunity to share how they accomplish their day-to-day work. Survey data will provide a blueprint for the CPIA Council in shaping the content outline of the CPIA exam so it is reflective of current practices, and in realigning the eligibility guidelines to ensure they are inclusive of those who are responsible for IACUC administrative functions.

All those whose primary job responsibilities involve the daily management and oversight of IACUCs (including both CPIAs and noncertified individuals) are encouraged to participate. Please share this survey with your IACUC colleagues to help us ensure all IACUC administrative roles are recognized.

The survey takes approximately 15-20 minutes to complete. Individual responses will be kept confidential and will be combined with those of other respondents. All participants have the opportunity to enter a raffle to win a new Amazon Kindle. Current CPIAs are also able to request a certificate of attendance for two continuing education credits. 

The deadline to complete the survey is July 12, 2022. 


A job analysis survey is a comprehensive survey that asks members of a certification program’s target audience to answer a series of questions about their professional roles and duties. Participants are asked whether they are responsible for executing a series of different functions/tasks, the frequency with which these tasks are executed, and the degree of importance with which they place each task in relation to their overall responsibilities.

All of those whose primary job responsibilities include substantial participation in overseeing, administering, or performing the daily activities of an IACUC are encouraged to participate.

No. Both CPIAs and noncertified individuals are encouraged to complete the survey.

Yes! Anyone who is responsible for IACUC administrative functions is welcome to participate. There is no cap on the number of participants from a given organization.
