Certification and Membership changes

The Institute is changing the way it delivers professional qualifications and membership to help increase the professional recognition and profile of IT professionals in New Zealand, and make IITP membership clearer and more accessible.

Here's where you'll find more about the transition from ITCP Certification to Chartered IT Professional NZ*, the new Certified Technologist, and the membership changes.

The changes take effect from 2 February 2015 and we've written to all affected members.


Chartered IT Professional NZ is the international gold standard for senior IT Professionals refined for NZ. From February, IT Certified Professional becomes CITPNZ.
