CPE Reporting for IIA Certified Auditors
Continuing Professional Education (CPE)
The Board of Regents requires that after certification, CIAs, CCSAs, CGAPs, and CFSAs maintain their knowledge and skills and stay abreast of improvements and current developments in their area of certification through Continuing Professional Education (CPE). This is facilitated through a self-certification process with the completion and reporting of required CPE hours on a biennial basis.
The reporting year is determined by the individual's IIA membership or customer (for non-members) identification number. IIA-certified professionals whose membership or customer identification numbers end with an even number should report in even-numbered years and those whose membership or customer identification numbers end with an odd number should report in odd-numbered years. For example:
Membership/Customer ID = #22222 (even number) reports 2010-2011 calendar year CPE by May 31, 2012.
Membership/Customer ID = #33333 (odd number) reports 2011-2012 calendar year CPE by May 31, 2013.
The reporting deadline is May 31st of the reporting year. CPE reporting by IIA members is free; nonmembers must submit a US $50 processing fee with their report. 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.
New CIAs are awarded 80 CPE hours (40 CPE hours are awarded to new CCSA, CGAP, or CFSA individuals) for passing the exam. Half of these CPE hours (40) are for the year in which the exam is passed and the other 40 hours for the subsequent year. Similarly, CCSAs, CGAPs, and CFSAs receive 20 CPE hours for the year in which they passed the exam and 20 CPE hours 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 customer identification number when reporting your CPE.
