Continuing Professional Education (CPE) and Continuing Professional Development (CPD) Requirements
2019 CPE/CPD reporting is now open. Log in to the Certification Candidate Management System (CCMS) to complete the CPE or CPD Reporting Form.
The reporting deadline is 31 December each year.
Don’t Miss Out on Being Included in The IIA Certification Registry
All individuals who have earned an IIA certification and maintain it by reporting CPE/CPD are eligible to opt in to The IIA Certification Registry. This up-to-date record provides an opportunity for employers and recruiters to verify your certification. The registry will only include the following: certification holder’s first and last name; certificate ID; certification status; country of residence. Inclusion in the registry is voluntary.
If you do not report, your certification/qualification goes inactive, and as a result, you are no longer approved to represent yourself as a certified individual nor be listed in the registry.
As an IIA certified or qualified professional, you are responsible for ensuring that the CPE or CPD information in your report is accurate. You must include your membership or customer identification number when reporting your CPE or CPD. Get more information on CPE reporting steps for current and inactive certificants.
CPE and CPD reporting fees vary globally, based upon membership status, if you report CPE or CPD directly to The IIA through CCMS, or through your local affiliate. Please check with your local affiliate for pricing and reporting process.
Visit the Pricing Structure page of our website for the most current pricing information. IIA-certified professionals who fail to meet their CPE or CPD requirements by the reporting deadline will automatically be placed in inactive status and may not use their designation.
Are You Newly Certified or Qualified?
You are awarded CPE or CPD hours (40 or 20) for the year in which the exam is passed, and the other half are for the subsequent year.
- New CIAs are awarded 80 CPE hours
- New CCSAs, CGAPs, CFSAs, and CRMAs are awarded 40 CPE hours
- New QIALs are awarded 40 CPD hours
