CPE Policy Updates

The following clarifications and changes to the ISACA certification CPE policies have been made.   These modifications were approved by the Credentialing and Career Management Board and went into effect 1 January 2013.  They are universal and apply equally to all ISACA certifications.

  1. Reconsideration and Appeal: Individuals whose certification has been revoked due to noncompliance with the CPE policy and who later appeal for reinstatement may incur an additional reinstatement fee of US $50. This reinstatement fee is effective for those reinstated after 1 January 2013 (when the revocation had been outstanding more than 60 days) and is in addition to any back or current certification maintenance fees needed to bring the certified individual in compliance with the CPE policy.
  2. Calculating CPE Hours: CPEs can be reported in quarter hour increments. One CPE hour is earned for each fifty (50) minutes of active participation (excluding lunches and breaks) for qualifying ISACA and non-ISACA professional educational activities and meetings. CPE hours can be earned in quarter hour increments and can also be reported in quarter hours (rounded to the nearest quarter hour).
  3. Exam question development and review (no limit): For those serving on an ISACA committee/task force that is responsible for exam question review, evidence of actual hours for the formal item review process will be provided.
  4. Contributions to the profession (20-hour annual limit): CPE hours are earned for the actual number of hours contributed.
