Why CBAP Recertification.?

CBAP recertification requires you to earn a minimum of 60 Continuing Development Units (CDUs) every three years from your date of Certification.

  • CBAP Recertification FAQ



    Which of the dates is counted as 3-years completion date?

    As per IIBA website, A recipient’s certification begins on the date they pass the certification examination and ends on the third anniversary of that date.
    For example, an examination date of July 31, 2007 results in a certification expiration date of July 31, 2010 which means the recipient must recertify by end of day July 31, 2010.

    What happens if I don’t recertify?

    Recipients who do not satisfy the recertification requirements will automatically be placed in suspended status. The suspended recipient’s name will be removed from the IIBA online certification registry.
    Suspended status will last a maximum of one year from the certification expiration date. Suspended status also means that the recipient may no longer use the credential or certification mark, nor identify or represent him/herself as the holder of the credential or as certified by IIBA®.
    Failure of the recipient to adhere to these guidelines will result in the revocation of the designation.


    The movement from suspended status back to active status requires the recipient to accumulate the required number and qualifying type of CDUs, pay the appropriate fee and agree to Terms and Conditions as well as to the Code of Ethical Conduct and Professional Standards.

    What’s the CBAP recertification fees?

    The current renewal fee for IIBA® members is $85 USD and $120 USD for non-members (plus GST/HST for Canadian residents) and is non-refundable.
