If your organization is passionate about ongoing professional development and interested in supporting this year’s special convocation event, Southern Alberta's Virtual Convocation provides the perfect opportunity to get in front of a wide audience of industry professionals in celebration of the educational achievements of our newest graduates.

Sponsorship opportunities will include recognition on our convocation web page, on social media and during the live virtual event. Please contact for more details.


When you successfully complete your final exam in the CIP program, you are automatically eligible to graduate, but a few steps need to happen before you can begin using your CIP designation. We need to ensure you meet the academic and employment requirements of the program, including at least one year of full-time employment in the industry. If we require any additional information from you, you will be notified by email.

Students who wrote (and passed!) their final exam in December 2022, April 2023 and July 2023 are invited to attend convocation as a graduate for the November 23, 2023 event.
