Standard Procedure for RecertificatioN

About the recertification

At GIMI-IAOIP, we understand the importance of staying ahead in the dynamic field of Innovation Management. To maintain the highest standards of expertise, we follow a comprehensive approach to recertification, aligning with industry best practices.

The basic recertification requirement for all levels of certification shall be 100 CPE units over the five years for which the original certification was valid.

Continuing Professional Education (CPE) Units Defined:

We adhere to the guidelines set by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI), recognizing a CPE as 50 contact minutes of instruction. These sessions are conducted by seasoned professionals well-versed in the subject matter, ensuring a learning experience that aligns with the participant’s education, experience, and advanced preparation.

As a professional organization committed to excellence, GIMI-IAOIP emphasizes the value of continuous learning. Our recertification standards are designed to not only meet but exceed industry expectations, keeping our certified individuals at the forefront of innovation management.

Stay updated, stay certified – GIMI-IAOIP is your partner in ongoing professional development.
