APIS Certification Donations
Donations for undergoing the certification process depend upon the type and level of certification.
These do not include the APIS membership donation except where it is a new non-member applying for certification and are required to join the APIS (as only APIS members may be certified), to encourage new auditors and groups to appy for certification.
The donation requested for an auditor, group or organisation undergoing a certification process are as follows:
The donation for initial certification is $50 USD
For each subsequent certification the donation is 25 US dollars. Example. If a Class II certified auditor applies for certification then the donation is 25USD. If they, at a later period apply for certification to Level IV, then the donation for THAT certification would be 25 USD.
The donation for yearly maintainance of certification for an individual auditor of any level is 25 US Dollars. This is over and above the IFA renewal donation of 50 US Dollars for that individual auditor.
Academy and Training Centers:
The donation for initial certification would be 100 US dollars.
The donation for yearly maintainance of certification for an Academy or training center is 50 US Dollars. This is over and above the IFA renewal donation of 50 US Dollars for that training center.
Groups and Organisations. (defined as those groups that deliver a combined auditing and training services):
The donation for initial certification would be 250 US Dollars.
For each subsequent certification of an individual auditor in that group or organisation, the donation is 25 US dollars. Example. If a newly joined Classed auditor applies for certification then the donation by that group is 50US Dollars. If they, or any other auditors in that group, at a later period apply for further certification to another level, then the donation for THAT certification would be 525 US Dollars.
The donation for yearly maintainance of certification for an individual auditor or supervisor of any level is 25 US Dollars. This is over and above the annual renewal donation for that group of 150 US dollars.
