The Established IT Professionals Route provides a competency based review and assessment methodology and allows applicants to demonstrate mastery of the BOK.
The overarching principles that apply to this route are:
- A point based scoring system linked to competency levels is used to measure mastery of the BOK.
- A minimum BOK Competency Score (BCS) of 21 points is required, whereby a minimum of Level 2 (3 points) in the core of the BOK (the professional issues in IT) and additional 18 points (minimum) from at least 6 technical areas of the BOK needs to be achieved.
- An overall familiarity with the CIPS BOK areas and its component area.
