If this is your first time logging in, at the bottom of the page, you will see the text "Submit/Review My CIT Application." If you've logged in previously, you will see a tile for the CIT application link. From there, follow the instructions within the application itself.
Once your application is submitted and reviewed by a staff member, you will get a system generated email indicating that your application has been approved. From this date you have one year to take the exam and three years to pass it.
Application fee includes first attempt at the exam and any subsequent retakes within the alloted window.
Passing the exam makes the applicant a CIT until the end of the initial 1-year period (ex: if you pass the exam in January- September, your certification is valid until the end of that year, if you pass in October-December, it will be valid through the remainder of the year plus following year)
