The Information Quality Certified Professional (IQCP) credential must be renewed every three years. There are two ways to recertify:
- Submit a recertification journal that documents a minimum level of ongoing professional development.
- Or take the exam again.
The table below summarizes the professional activities that can be used to earn Recertification Credits for the IQCP credential.
Over the next few weeks, the detailed description of the program will be published, including the number of credits that each activity can earn and the supporting documentation that must be provided.
In the meantime, we encourage you to obtain and retain documentation about your participation in these activities since the effective date of your IQCP designation.
