Congratulations for aspiring to become a Certified Image Consultant in your profession!
The AICI Certified Image Consultant (AICI CIC) designation shows others that you have achieved practiced standards in the image consulting industry and that you keep abreast of current thinking and technical knowledge.
The successful completion of the CIC Portfolio is one of the steps necessary in completing your CIC certification. The order in which you complete your CIC Portfolio is determined by the track you selected at the time that you completed your CIC application.
Please review your CIC Portfolio carefully, as it will take some time to complete. All information will remain confidential. The standard is high and you must prove to the reviewer that you have received appropriate training and are working in a qualified image business. Please note that all entries and supporting documentation, with the exception of promotional materials must be submitted in English. It is the responsibility of the applicant to translate materials into English.
The decision of the AICI CIC Committee is final, but you will be told the reasons you fell short in any section. It is strongly advised that you submit your completed portfolio at least two (2) months in advance of your final deadline, in case you need to add or clarify any documentation.
Please send your unopened client evaluation forms through a reliable delivery service (UPS or FedEx) to the CIC Reviewer.
