After careful consideration, AICI has decided to increase the certification fee for CIP from USD300 to USD400 effective January 1, 2018. AICI sees this fee adjustment as a necessary step in view of rising costs and the need to ensure that sufficient resources are available for continued support and growth of the association.

The fee increase only affects applications submitted after December 31, 2017. All applications for CIP certification received by AICI headquarters with payment in full prior to January 1, 2018, shall not be subject to the fee increase.

We seek your kind understanding and we look forward to your continued support.
