A Board Certification candidate can request an experience waiver of one year in the following circumstances:

Based on educational qualifications (on a case by case basis) the candidate can request a waiver of a maximum of one-year work experience as a direct full-time professional in the intelligence and or investigative sectors.

This requires an educational qualification such as an advanced degree such as a Masters or Ph.D. in the areas of criminal justice, homeland security, intelligence, psychology, or relevant program from an institution accredited by an organization recognized by the U.S Department of Education.

Valid experience includes intelligence and/or investigative related work, performed as a full-time practitioner, consultant, investigator, or instructor and requires the direct application of that knowledge. The experience must also cover the core competencies of the program for which the waiver is requested.
