Certified International Professional Negotiator – CIPN

Contact Admission Office

CIPN, (“Certified International Professional Negotiator”), is a certification program designed for US and international business practitioners by the American Certification Institute (ACI) and the International Purchasing and Supply Chain Management Institute (IPSCMI) for those individuals who wish to increase their international negotiation skills. This program is dedicated to promote negotiation skills and knowledge to world-class standards.

CIPN is designed to evaluate objectively professionals on their ability to learn and apply international business negotiation knowledge, skill, and ability. If the professional wishes to obtain certification, he/she must demonstrate such knowledge, skill, and ability through a “real-world”international “mock negotiation” conducted on the last day of the class or successfully pass an 80 question multiple choice certification examination. The method of evaluation is determined by the individual client organization. For public seminars, the “mock negotiation” approach is employed. In the “mock negotiation”, group and individual negotiators are thoroughly evaluated and critiqued by the course instructors and other students. If successful, they will be considered candidates for certification.
