Certification Board of Infection Control and Epidemiology, Inc (CBIC)
The Certification Board of Infection Control and Epidemiology, Inc. (CBIC) is a voluntary, autonomous, multidisciplinary board that provides direction for, and administers to, the certification process for professionals in infection prevention and control and applied epidemiology. CBIC is independent and separate from any other infection control – related organization or association.
This is the most widely recognized examination for infection control professionals in North America. Partnership with CHICA–Canada has resulted in collaboration on examination questions, exam centres being held across Canada and a CHICA Chapter award. A PowerPoint presentation describing the role of CBIC is now available on CHICA CHAT (in the Members Only section of this website).
NOTE: The certification examinations are not available in French.
