What is the time commitment for the ICIP program?

There is a total of 9 hours of video lessons (ICIP Technology course = 3h 14m; ICIP Business course = 3h 0m; ICIP Strategy & Digital Transformation course = 2h 44m) and then the time to take the quizzes and exam. These are dense lessons so many students watch certain lessons more than once. Then there’s the question of pacing. You can binge learn or pace the courses on a schedule. The record holder is a student who got certified in just 12 hours to prepare for a big job interview, but most students take about a month to get certified.

Is there a schedule that needs to be followed?

There is no schedule to follow.  All courses are self-paced, the schedule is your schedule.

Is there a fixed timeframe to complete this training program?

Yes, you have one calendar year from date of enrollment to complete the program, but this will be extended if you ask for more time.  After you have completed the program you still have access go back to the material at any time during the year.

How do I know if this program is right for me?

Carefully review the program description and the Technology, Business, and Strategy & Digital Transformation course pages and watch the free lessons.  It’s all there in fine detail but if you still have questions, email

Are there prerequisites or knowledge requirements?

There are no prerequisites.  This is a perfect first program to take when entering the field of IoT.  There is no pre-work that needs to be completed.  You only need a general knowledge of technology and business.

Are the lessons live or pre-recorded?

All video lessons are pre-recorded and available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, to be watched as many times as you like. You can enroll at any time and complete the material at your own pace.

Which devices can I use to watch the lessons?

This program is available online and can be consumed with your computer, tablet or phone.

Is there any limit to the number of times I may take a lesson, or repeat a given course?

There are no limits. You can retake the material as often as you like.

What if I fail a quiz or the final exam? How many times may I retake a quiz or the final?

You can take quizzes and exam as often as needed.

What Learning Management System (LMS) do you use to host the program?

We use Thinkific for our LMS and Accredible to manage student credentials (certificates and badges).

Will I get certified?

Yes. Once you watch each lesson and pass each course quiz and then pass the final exam, you’ll receive your IoT Professional certificate and LinkedIn badge by email from Iot-Inc.  Accredible uses blockchain to secure our credentials.

Does the certification expire, and will there be a recertification requirement?

The certification, CERTIFIED IOT PROFESSIONAL does not expire and does not require recertification.

Is the material going to be available post-certification as well? In other words, can I come back to it a few months later for reference?

Yes, the material will be available post-certification.

Is there any programming involved?

There is no programming. Students will be taught how all the technology works but will not be taught how to implement it with programming or any other hands-on technical skills like scripting. Nor are there any hands-on projects to complete. The student will learn how to design and architect an IoT product, system or environment.

Can I choose which courses to buy?

No.  The program, which consists of three courses: ICIP Technology, ICIP Business and ICIP Strategy & Digital Transformation, must be purchased as a whole.

Does the ICIP Audio program include certification?

No, the ICIP audio program does not include certification.  It was mainly developed as a companion product to ICIP online training & certification program – a way to reinforce online learning.  To get certified you must pass the short quiz after each module (around 28 of them) and the final exam.

Is the IoT Inc book included with the program?

No… Yes… well sort of.  If the book is purchased, use the coupon code, “book30” upon checkout to subtract $30 from the price of the ICIP program.

I read the book, should I enroll in the ICIP program?

ICIP students agree, if you thought the book was useful, you’ll love the program.  The ICIP program takes the material from the book and goes one-step further by looking at it in different ways and by teaching how to apply it to your business through step-by-step frameworks and over 20 case studies.  The book is recommended but not necessary.


Is there a refund policy?

Yes.  Let us know if you’re not satisfied with the ICIP program within 30 days and we’ll refund 100% of your money.  Having said that, make sure the program is right for you before buying it and try out the free lessons to make sure they meet your expectations.
