Certified Information Technology Professional Exam to Be Given July 16-Aug. 25.

Join the more than 350 CPAs already using the Certified Information Technology Professional designation, awarded to members who have demonstrated their competency and experience in providing information technology services. The CITP designation will allow you to distinguish yourself as a CPA who specializes in IT strategic planning, implementation, management and business strategies and will provide you with the competitive edge of holding a designation offered exclusively to CPA information technology professionals.

The awarding of the designation is based upon a "point system" that is designed to allow for flexibility of entry into the program by both newer and seasoned CPA IT professionals. There are minimum requirements for both business experience and lifelong learning, with an examination required for those who do not achieve sufficient points in these areas. Members interested in earning the Certified Information Technology Professional designation will need to apply online at http://citp.aicpa.org to determine if they need to take the CITP exam. The next CITP exam will be given during a six-week window of opportunity at Prometric Testing Centers July 16 -Aug. 25, 2001. The cut-off date for this exam is July 1. Members must complete the CITP Assessment Tool by this date in order to qualify for the exam, if required.

For more information on the CITP designation, visit the Information Center at http://citp.aicpa.org to view the CITP Handbook (which outlines the requirements) and to access the CITP Assessment Tool -- the application form that must be completed online. Or, call or e-mail Stephanie Panzariello at 201/938-3361 or citp@aicpa.org to receive a copy of the Handbook.

A self-study review manual will be available to prepare candidates pursuing the CITP exam. The CITP Review Manual will be mailed later this month to all CITP candidates who have paid their initial application fee.
