Together with some of the world’s leading biometrics experts, IEEE established the IEEE Certified Biometrics Professional (CBP) Program to help meet the training, hiring, and evaluation needs of professionals and organizations throughout the biometrics industry.

To earn the IEEE CBP credential, candidates are required to pass a rigorous examination and promise to adhere to the IEEE CBP Code of Ethics. There are no eligibility requirements or prerequisites to register for and take the CBP examination.

The IEEE CBP Program also offers a comprehensive professional development and exam preparation tool. The self-directed IEEE CBP Learning System combines print materials that cover the entire CBP body of knowledge, with interactive online learning software to deliver an effective learning experience.

  • Biometrics Fundamentals;
  • Biometric Modalities;
