Each year, ISACA conducts an audit of a subset of certificate-holders to measure compliance with the Continuing Professional Education (CPE) Policy to ensure that all ISACA certified individuals maintain an adequate level of current knowledge and proficiency in their field.
ISACA’s certifications are highly regarded. In addition to complying to ANSI requirements, we expect high standards and behaviors of those we certify; and as a result, set high standards to both obtain and maintain them. The goal of the continuing professional education (CPE) policy is to ensure that all ISACA certified individuals maintain an adequate level of current knowledge and proficiency in their professional field.
The audit selection process is as follows:
- Must be an ISACA certificate holder for at least one of the four core certifications:
- Must have been certified on or during the calendar year of 2016
- Auditees are chosen at random
