Continuing Professional Education (CPE) Requirements

CPE is integral in ensuring that internal audit practitioners continue to keep their knowledge and skills current with industry developments. It equips practitioners with the ability to evolve with the changing industry landscape and enhances their professionalism and value within the industry.

As part of the annual CPE requirements, all certification holders are required to file and pay their CPE reporting fee through the CCMS yearly by 31 December of each calendar year.  Click here for more details on the CPE requirements.

Effective 2018, all members are expected to achieve a minimum of 10 CPE hours, out of which, a minimum of 2 CPE hours has to be under Ethics, to continue to enjoy the benefits of your IIA Singapore membership. The 10 CPE hours are not an add-on to the CPE reporting requirements for maintaining your designations for certification holders.  As the CPE requirements for certifications are more onerous, you would have deemed to have fulfilled this as long as you actively report your CPE on an annual basis.
