The CHCIO Program was developed with input from 46 CHIME members and certification professionals at Castle Worldwide. By definition, a CHCIO demonstrates the commitment, knowledge, and experience required to master the core skills important for successful CIOs and IT executives.

CHCIOs must undergo recertification every three years. CHCIO-Eligible status is awarded to those candidates who meet all of the program requirements but lack the requisite number of years of experience as a CIO.
