Certification Fees

On July 1, the IAPP will retire the Certification Foundation exam and begin administering single certification exams for the CIPP, CIPM and CIPT programs. The new exams will feature more questions and a longer administration time. If you test after July 1, you will not be required to take the Foundation exam to become certified. Learn more about what this change means for you.
