CITP Champion Program 


The Certified Information Technology Professional (CITP) Champion Program is an AICPA Initiative that offers CITPs the support, structure and resources to help promote and expand awareness of the CITP credential.

The purpose of the program is to inform the professional accounting community about the vital role of CITP professionals, the knowledge required to become a CITP, and the benefits of the CITP credential.
