Are you ready for the CPIP exam? Take the
CPIP Practice Exam to find out!

The CPIP examination, a 150-question multiple choice computer-based test, can be intimidating to those preparing to take it. To help you determine your exam-readiness, ISPE has developed a CPIP Practice Exam. 

This 50-question online test will help you:

  • Learn more about what types of questions will be on the exam
  • See how questions relate to the technical competency knowledge elements they represent
  • Identify areas where additional study would be beneficial to you

Be prepared for your CPIP exam—take the CPIP Practice Exam now!

Community Icon

Find or start a CPIP Study Group

Studying with a group can make preparing for the CPIP exam more rewarding and more enjoyable. Not only will you benefit from the group's shared knowledge; you'll make professional connections and personal friendships that will benefit you far into the future. 

CPIP Study Groups can:

  • Give you practical support for achieving eligibility and passing the exam
  • Help you expand your personal network within the industry
  • Provide an opportunity to learn from others and share study resources

Several Affiliates and Chapters already have CPIP Study Groups (fun fact: the Nordic Affiliate sponsored one of the first-ever study groups); check with your Affiliate or Chapter leadership to see if there's a CPIP Study Group available in your area. 

No study groups available near you? Start one! Contact Michael Phelan, ISPE's Professional Certification Director, at for guidance on starting a CPIP Study Group for your Affiliate or Chapter.
