APIC Offers Competency Advancement Assistance Program for CIC Candidates

To help infection preventionists better manage costs associated with obtaining the CIC® credential, the Association for Professionals in Infection Control and Epidemiology (APIC) introduces the Competency Advancement Assistance program (CAA), which is designed to support this critical component of competency advancement. Financial assistance will be available to more than 70 individuals for costs related to either initial certification or recertification.

Determine if you are eligible to apply and learn more by reviewing the complete CAA information. To apply, submit your application online by Oct. 31, 2012. Be sure to complete all sections of the form. Letters of support, resumes or additional information are not required. Applicants will be notified of selection by Dec. 1, 2012.

APIC thanks its strategic partners who are the sole sponsors of the CAA program.
