I passed! I’m an IGP for the next 3 years. A list of the 56 inaugural IGPs is available here.
Not sure yet what the recertification requirements will be since ARMA International is still finalizing them but see that the ‘My Certification’ tab in my online ARMA profile now shows a requirement for 25 hours with a CE cycle end date of December 31, 2013. Since that date is fast approaching, I hope ARMA will announce the recertification details soon.
The passing score was 650 (maximum score = 900). I’m not sure what my score was because ARMA doesn’t report individual scores – you’re only told if you ‘pass’ or ‘fail’, just like with the Certified Records Manager (CRM) exams.
I’m also not sure what the exam success rate was since ARMA didn’t announce the number of individuals in the pilot test group. It would be interesting to know the success rate. Perhaps ARMA will publish it in the future?
The next IGP exam window is September 30 – November 9 (subject to change). For more information on the IGP, click here. You might also want to read my earlier blog post on my IGP experience.

Hi, Melissa. I recommend reviewing the DACUM http://www.arma.org/docs/igp/dacumchart1012.pdf and reading from the book list, particularly for any areas of the DACUM to which you believe you need to devote more study time. I also recommend doing the sample questions to get a feel for how the questions are typically worded. The sample questions are available at http://www.arma.org/r2/igp-certification/sample
Good luck! Best wishes for passing the exam in the spring.
I am starting to study for this exam and plan on taking it in the Spring. Do you recommend any specific studying techniques in addition to reading from the book list?
