CPE is facilitated through a self-certification process with the completion and reporting of required CPE hours based on requirement of the respective certification on an annual basis.
The reporting deadline is 31 December each year through the Certification Candidate Management System (CCMS). CPE reporting fee varies according to membership status with the local affiliate. Click here for information on the CPE reporting fees. IIA-certified professionals who fail to meet their CPE requirements by the reporting deadline will automatically be placed in inactive status and may not use their designation.
Get more information on CPE reporting steps for current and inactive IIA certification holders.
New CIAs are awarded 80 CPE hours; new CCSAs, CFSAs, CGAPs, and CRMAs are awarded 40 CPE hours. Half of the awarded CPE hours (40 or 20) are for the year in which the exam is passed, and the other half are for the subsequent year.
As an IIA-certified professional, you are responsible for ensuring that the CPE information in your report is accurate. You must include your membership or candidate identification number when reporting your CPE. View the CPE Policy for qualifying CPE activities.
Log in to the Certification Candidate Management System (CCMS) to complete the CPE Reporting Form.
