IGP Certification
Share |

An Information Governance Professional (IGP) is...

... a person who has earned the only certification that demonstrates he or she has the strategic perspective and the requisite knowledge to help an organization leverage information for maximum value while reducing the costs and mitigating the risks associated with using and governing this important asset.  

Mission of the Information Governance Professional (IGP) Certification Program:

Provide an information governance credential within an ethical and professional framework to support individuals to deliver organizational value and reduce risk.

IGP Governance Board

The IGP program is governed by the IGP Governance Board, which is incorporated separately from ARMA International. This board guides the certification program, provides outreach to the profession, and clearly separates the functions and decisions related to certification from other ARMA International programs and goals. Read more here to view IGP board bios and descriptions.

NOTE: Recertification Cycle - 2014-2017

If you certified in 2014, you have until March 31, 2018 to earn your recertification credits. (The extension was granted because of ARMA technology upgrades.)

After March 31, certification staff will review your credit record and determine if the credit requirements have been met. Invoices for the $250 recertification fee will be issued through your YM account and will cover all administrative support through the recertification cycle of 2017-2020.

The new website has changed some processes for managing your IGP certification.

  • For ARMA HQ education: Credits for qualified events completed through the LMS will automatically transfer to your account.
  • ARMA chapters / other organizations: We’ll still accept credits from these organizations. However, you DO have to enter the request and documentation through the YM entry screen.
  • Documentation uploads: You can now upload multiple documents to the same credit request.
