After a lot of good feedback and hard work, the folks at AIIM have re-branded the "information certification" as the "Certified Information Professional" (CIP). This is an excellent improvement, and will help in communicating the purpose and importance of this program and designation to a wider audience.
I have updated my earlier post about me earning the certification.
Every information management professional and information architect should become a Certified Information Professional. Experienced pros can quickly identify and fill knowledge gaps, while newcomers have a solid learning path to become an information subject matter expert. Earning the CIP designation demonstrates to your organization and clients that you are a valuable resource for their enterprise information initiatives.
