CCIP‌® Candidacy Requirements

Candidacy requirements define the parameters on the basis of which an applicant shall be evaluated fit for applying for a particular BCI certification.

Educational Requirements

An applicant for CCIP‌® should have at least completed 14 years of formal education at the time of applying. Typically, most CCIP‌® applicants have completed their A-Level/O-Level/Higher Secondary/12th grade.

However, applicants with an undergraduate degree or those who are just graduating out of the university have often proven to be better prepared for harnessing their CCIP‌® qualification - than their younger counterparts; especially in some Asian and African countries.

Professional / Work Requirements

There is no requirement of prior work-experience to be able to apply for CCIP‌®. Even individuals just out of their schools and colleges with ZERO work experience can apply for CCIP‌®.

However, many of those with some work exposure behind them have been seen making a comparatively better use of the CCIP‌® qualification for their careers.


Ideally an applicant should have completed 18 years of age at the time of applying for CCIP‌®. There is no upper age bar, however for any BCI certification program.
