CPE Management Simplified

The IAPP’s CPE Policy now makes it easier than ever to maintain your certification(s). Our new policy and improvements to your MyIAPP page are designed to minimize confusion and help you explore all the CPE opportunities the IAPP has to offer. Read about six of the most important updates below or scroll up to watch the video.

  1. One CPE for all
    Gone are the days of Group A and B distinctions. In the future, you will simply be required to submit 20 CPEs per term, per credential.
  2. Multiple credentials–one end date
    If you have more than one IAPP credential, you will now only need to remember one term end date. We will align all certifications to the term date of your first earned certification. Additionally, if you earn a second credential within one year of the end date of your first, you will not be required to earn CPEs for that new credential until the next full term.
  3. More detailed CPE records
    Get a clear snapshot of your recertification progress.
  4. Easily apply CPEs to multiple credentials
    An easy-to-use interface with straightforward terminology will simplify this process.
  5. Searchable CPE options
    Now you can find and identify CPE opportunities (including more free options) two new ways – through CPE Central, a new area of iapp.org that is searchable by credential, and by looking for tagged content throughout our site.
  6. New non-member fee structure
    The annual maintenance fee for non-members will become a certification maintenance fee of $250 that will cover the entire two-year certification term.
