The CIW curriculum provides hands-on training for real-world Internet technologies that is independent of particular product vendors. A student may train at an instructor-led training site or train at home or at the office using conference calls, e-mail, and Web-based support. Examinations are administered by Sylvan Prometric, an independent testing body, at one of their testing centers. The Internet Certification Institute International (ICII) offers CIW certification worldwide and ProsoftTraining.Com offers the CIW certification program in the U.S. CIW certification is accredited by the Association of Internet Professionals and endorsed by the World Organization of Webmasters.

The first step toward certification is the CIW Foundations course.
