Leadership, Education and Advancement Program–LEAP

The Smart Card Alliance Leadership, Education and Advancement Program (LEAP) is an online, members-only organization for smart card professionals. Its purpose is two-fold: to advance education and professional development, and to manage and confer, based on a standardized body-of-knowledge exam, the Certified Smart Card Industry Professional (CSCIP) designation.

LEAP members with a minimum of 2 years professional experience in the smart card industry are eligible to apply for CSCIP certification.

LEAP is especially valuable for new entrants to the market or professionals working for small organizations without access to full Smart Card Alliance membership benefits.
