When and Where

The Certified Information Privacy Manager (CIPM) exam assesses understanding of the skills to establish, maintain and manage a privacy program across all stages of its operational life cycle.

CIPM Candidates purchasing a first-time exam, or those purchasing a first retake exam may do so through our website. Subsequent retake exams must be purchased by calling the IAPP.

An annual certification maintenance fee of $125 USD is due when you register for your first IAPP certification exam and then annually on the anniversary of your first IAPP certification. For members, the annual certification maintenance fee is included with your membership. 


The IAPP offers test center examinations with computer-based delivery through Pearson VUE, which includes thousands of testing centers around the world.  Following payment of examination fees through the IAPP website, you will be directed to Pearson VUE's website for HOST location and exam date and time selection through the My Purchases section of your MyIAPP account.

Exams are offered year round. Date and time availability varies depending on HOST center location, and candidates are encouraged to register as early as possible to guarantee a seat.  Please note that testing centers may only have dates available within 90 days in advance of the current date. 

If you’re holding one or more IAPP certifications and considering adding others, you’ll receive a discounted price of $375 on this exam that will be automatically applied to your shopping cart. 

NOTE: If you require special accommodations because of a qualifying disability, you must submit an Accommodation Request prior to scheduling your exam by selection YES to the special accommodation question on the My Purchases section of your MyIAPP portal for the desired exam. Please do not schedule a test center exam session until your request has been approved by the IAPP.
