The CPIP program is closed to new candidates from Nov 30, 2013

A CPIP Study Guide is available to assist candidates in preparing for the examination.

You can download a CPIP Practice Exam to help you prepare for the actual examination.

Other organizations offer additional resources that may help you prepare, including ISPE, which offers CPIP Online Learning Courses. While completion of any of these courses does not guarantee successful completion of the CPIP Certification Program certification exam, they provide valuable knowledge to aid you with your exam preparation and professional development. The ISPE Professional Certification Commission does not endorse any of these resources, products, or services offered relative to the CPIP certification program.

Sam DeMarco, CPIP, President Compliance Team Inc, United States

"I believe that the credential has made me more confident and I feel that my clients engage me in more philosophical discussions on pharmaceutical industry subject matter. I get the sense that my clients 'listen' to me in a more serious 'in tune' way."

Marc Fleischman, CPIP, Facility and Verification Engineer, Genzyme, a Sanofi Company

"I chose to pursue the CPIP certification as a way to learn new phases of the industry and to codify my existing knowledge. As I prepared and studied for the exam, I was challenged to develop a broader understanding of many industry concepts that I had not been routinely exposed to. The experience has left me with a deep understanding of GMP regulation and broad industry knowledge across the entire bio/pharm lifecycle."
