Each year, The IIA requires those who hold its certifications and qualifications to maintain professional competence through Continuing Professional Education (CPE) and report their earned hours to meet required standards for continued active certification and qualification.
The IIA regularly receives inquiries from certified individuals about what may count as CPE and from providers seeking accreditation.

The program goes further and establishes a process for acknowledging providers that have demonstrated they satisfy those standards.
