AIIM, the association for information management professionals, has updated and relaunched its Certified Information Professional
(CIP) certification for the first time since 2011 to reflect the changing role of the information professional in an era of digitisation.
Peggy Winton, interim president of AIIM, said: “The ‘perfect storm’ of change driven by consumerisation, cloud, mobile and the Internet of Things has changed the way we view information and it has changed the skills we need to get the best value from it. We have looked at CIP and updated it to more accurately define the body of knowledge necessary for information professionals to be successful in today’s digital economy.”
AIIM has built a certification and test for the new CIP, available at locations around the world, as well as a set of training courses and materials to help information professionals prepare for the examination.
A free AIIM eBook, Information Professionals: Where We Came From and Where We’re Going, looks in more detail at the new role of the Information Professional and includes information on becoming AIIM Certified.
