CITP - The CCP Scheme Fast Track Route

As part of our CCP Scheme we are offering applicants a fast track route to Chartered IT Professional (CITP) Status.

As the Chartered Institute for IT, we are offering Senior and Lead CCP applicants the opportunity to be assessed for Chartered IT Professional status as part of their CCP Scheme application.

How do I apply?

To apply for CITP status via the CCP fast track route you must apply for CCP certification at Senior or Lead Level. You will need to indicate within the CCP Written Submission form that you wish to apply for CITP.

You must ensure your written submission and supporting evidence demonstrate that you meet the criteria for your CCP role/level, as well as demonstrate how you meet the CITP criteria and have been working at SFIA level 5 for 3 out of the last 5 years.

What is the application process?

Your application for CCP will proceed as per the normal CCP application process. Your eligibility for CITP will be considered during your CCP interview where the CITP assessment stage 1 (initial review) and stage 3 (assessment interview) will take place simultaneously. Upon successful completion of your CCP application, if the assessors determine you meet CITP criteria you will also be successful in stages 1 and 3 of the CITP application process. You will need to pass CITP stage 2 (Breadth of Knowledge test) in order to achieve CITP status.

When can I apply?

Only CCP applications received on or after 21 July 2014 will be eligible to be assessed for CITP. If you have an existing CITP application in progress you will not be able to apply for CITP via this route.

What fees are involved?

You will be charged as per the normal fee structure for your CCP application Once you have successfully completed your CCP application we will contact you to take payment of the CITP application fee (payment is required before we can progress any further with your CITP application).
