What are CPE credits?

CPE stands for ‘Continuing Professional Education’ and is a framework for the acquisition of knowledge and skills in a professional context.

CPE credits are required by various professionals to ensure that certification holders demonstrate continuous learning about and current on developments in the industry and are required for recertification.

A wide range of accredited professionals* need to acquire CPE credits for recertification (some examples below):

  • Lawyers
  • Accountants
  • Architects
  • Healthcare professionals
  • Engineers
  • School teachers

CPE training examinations

*Depending on the country, accreditation requirements and certifications will vary.

For example Certified Public Accountants. CPAs are required to take additional coursework throughout their career to maintain current knowledge of rules, regulations and laws surrounding the accounting industry.

In order to be able to offer CPE courses (for the U.S.), a training organization must be registered with the National Association of State Boards of Accountancy (NASBA) as a CPE sponsor on the National Registry of CPE Sponsors. Then the courses offered by this training organization are assigned a number of CPE credits according to the standards established by NASBA.

The largest such organization is the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants, which is the national professional organization of CPAs in the United States, with more than 418,000 members in 143 countries. AICPA develops and grades the Uniform CPA Examination.

Each US state’s Board of Accountancy governs the number of CPE credits required and the type of credit earned. A CPE credit is granted to successful candidates of the program for every fifty minutes of instruction received.

CPE credits for the United States can be awarded via online courses, seminars, industry conventions, webinars, telephone conferences and self-study following the provisions of Continuing Professional Education (CPE) Policies & Guidelines 2015. The most economical and accessible option is increasingly via online courses and webinars. Industry conventions can run into the hundreds of dollars. Travel, accommodations and meals add substantially to the cost.
