A completed application is required to be eligible to sit for the Fall Exam. The following information must be received by August 1st to become a successful Applicant:
Application Forms, Fees and Deadlines
College or University Degree Transcripts (International Degrees may require extra steps)
IH Related Courses Documentation Form
Work Experience Documentation
Professional References Questionnaires
“Once everything has been received and processed, Applicants will be notified if they are now approved Candidates for the Fall Exam,” said Tracy Parsons, CIH, Administrative Program Manager at ABIH. “We encourage Candidates to then begin looking into scheduling their exam appointment through Prometric Testing Centers and paying the exam fees. Prometric has testing facilities that are available worldwide, but exam slots can fill up fast. This is especially true at the end of the testing window.”
The next exam period for those who miss the current deadline is the Spring 2015 CIH Exam. The deadline for all application materials to be submitted is February 1st and the exam period runs from April through May.
The complete application process and all of the requirements to become a CIH have been clearly defined by ABIH in a downloadable document that can be accessed at:
