C++ Institute Authorized Academy Program

C++ Institute Authorized Academy (CPIAA) is a free program offered to schools, universities, educational establishments and training companies.

It is an educational program and a modern didactic tool designed to improve students' learning experience and boost their engagement in the process of learning and developing C/C++ skills. It is also a great tool for teachers to improve their didactic efficiency as well as enhance the didactic content in a teaching/learning environment.

The program helps students acquire the skills and knowledge necessary to get a successful and well-paid career in programming. It also helps students gain fundamental knowledge and practical skills in C and C++ tested during exams at Pearson Vue Test Centers.


At the same time, membership of the program lets the teacher take advantage of a range of teaching aids, assessment modules and elements of gamification to deliver a successful class session. The CPIAA tool enables the teacher to create and manage C/C++ classes, assign instructors and students, activate and deactivate assessments and quizzes, and trace a student’s learning progress. The teacher can use the courseware and assessment kit as an independent and unified C/C++ course, or integrate them with a different course of his or her choice.

C++ Institute Authorized Academies are entitled to acquire vouchers on C and C++ exams at Pearson Vue at special prices, which allows them to give their students an opportunity to take the C/C++ high-stakes exams under favourable conditions.

All schools, universities, educational establishments and training organizations interested in becoming C++ Institute Authorized Academies are welcome to send their queries and submit applications at academy@cppinstitute.org. The C++ Institute also welcomes all educational entities interested in receiving assistance in planning, developing, implementing and delivering an effective C/C++ curriculum as well as transferring credit for C/C++ classes for those students who hold certifications issued by C++ Institute.
