Continuing Professional Education (CPE) Requirements
Annual CPE reporting opens 1 October each year. Log in to the Certification Candidate Management System (CCMS) to begin CPE reporting.
The reporting deadline is 31 December each year. Should you fail to report your CPE, your certification/qualification will become expired, and as a result, you are no longer approved to represent yourself as a certified individual. Individuals remaining expired for 12 months or longer will be charged a certification reinstatement fee.
As an IIA certified or qualified professional, you are responsible for ensuring that the CPE information in your report is accurate. You must log in to CCMS to report your CPE. Get more information on CPE reporting steps for current and expired certificate holders.

Annual CPE Audit Activities
The Annual CPE Audit notifications are sent in January for the prior year’s reporting cycle. Individuals selected for a CPE audit will be notified via email. If selected for an audit, individuals must provide evidence of previously reported CPE activities that meet the criteria described in the CPE Policy. (If you self-claim CPEs, be sure to keep detailed records.) If you are chosen for an audit, you will be given a six-month grace period to report CPE. The deadline and requirements for returning supporting documentation will be included in the email.
*CPE reporting fees vary globally based upon membership status. Individuals from IIA Institutes should contact their local representatives for their CPE reporting process.
