After taking a CIW exam, your result data is automatically sent to the CIW Candidate Information Center. An automated e-mail will be sent to the e-mail address on record for you, confirming that your result has imported successfully.
Once your information is imported, your exam results will be analyzed for a passing score.
Candidates must review and accept the CIW Certification Agreement to receive any CIW certification. The CIW Certification Agreement describes your rights and responsibilities as a member of the CIW certification program. The CIW certification program cannot provide a candidate with an official certificate until that candidate accepts the CIW Certification Agreement. Once completed, the CIW Certification Agreement applies to all future CIW programs you may pursue, as well.
After you fulfill all requirements, CIW certification is awarded automatically. Certificates can be printed and downloaded immediately from the CIW Candidate Information Center. You can also electronically publish your CIW credentials to any third party e-mail address, as well. There is no limit on the number of times you can download the certificate or publish your credentials. Note that CIW no longer physically mails paper certificates.
It is very important that the contact information you provide at exam registration time is accurate. Your contact information is how the CIW program will contact you if there is an issue regarding your certification.
