New in 2015
As with any valid certification program, BCIA periodically reviews all parts of a certification starting with the blueprint. BCIA updated and adopted a new blueprint in 2015. While this new blueprint is not currently being used by the accredited training programs, they will soon be asked to update their teaching materials. The revised exam will take into consideration that test takers may have taken training based on either the new blueprint or the previous version.
2015 Revised Blueprint
