Certification News: CPE Policy Updates and Exam Results

CPE policy updates—The CPE policies for all ISACA certification programs have been updated to reflect the following changes and/or policy clarifications that went into effect January 31, 2013:

  • Clarifications have been included regarding how CPE hours are earned for various qualifying activities.
  • Modifications have been made to reflect how CPE credit is to be earned and recorded. CPE hours can now be reported in one-quarter hour increments (rounded down to the nearest quarter hour).
  • All appeals resulting in reinstatements related to revocations that are more than 60 days old require a US $50 reinstatement fee. This reinstatement fee is in addition to any back or current certification maintenance fees needed to make the certified individual compliant with the CPE policy.
