As of March 2014, the ABII certification test is no longer an event test (offered twice a year at a predetermined time) and is now
offered on a day and time convenient to your choosing. ABII partners with The American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT)
and contracts with Pearson VUE, an independent testing center with locations throughout the world.
The Imaging Informatics Professional (IIP) test fee is $500, and the retake fee is $250. Candidates are allowed three attempts or
three years to pass the test. Individuals who pass the test will be eligible to refer to themselves as Certified Imaging Informatics
The test is composed of 150 multiple-choice questions that cover 10 major knowledge domains identified by imaging informatics
professionals as being critical to competent performance in the field. See
Sample Test Questions. The
Test Content Outline provides more detailed information on the subject
areas included in the test.
Individuals who pass the test will be entitled to refer to themselves as CERTIFIED IMAGING INFORMATICS PROFESSIONAL (CIIP).
ABII maintains Test Statistics including pass rates.
Please note: ARRT contracts with Pearson VUE on behalf of ABII. Because of this, Pearson VUE test center personnel and scheduling
representatives will refer to the ABII and the IIP test as ARRT and the ARRT test.
Once eligibility requirements have been met and an application received by ABII, candidates will receive notification that they can
schedule their test and are responsible for scheduling their test directly with Pearson VUE at a test center location of their choice
and at a time convenient to them.
Candidates may cancel or re-schedule an appointment up to 24 hours (one business day) prior to the scheduled appointment. Please see the
Certification Guide for details on canceling and missed appointments.
If circumstances make it impossible for a candidate to attend the scheduled test administration, they may cancel their Pearson VUE
appointment and request a postponement with ABII. Postponement requests must be received seven days before the test administration date.
Late requests will require the candidate to submit a re-examination form and fee of $250. Candidates are allowed up to three postponements
before having to re-apply.
See the Certification Guide for more details.
