Actively working Register Operational Auditors (ROs) and working Internal Auditors who are in possession of a CIA, CCSA, CFSA, CRMA, CGAP or QIAL certification are bound by Permanente Educatie (PE) and/or Continuing Professional Education (CPE). ROs must achieve a minimum of 40 PE points per year, including a minimum of 20 accredited points. CIAs must achieve a minimum of 40 CPE points per year. Auditors with a CCSA, CFSA, CRMA, CGAP or QIAL certification must achieve a minimum of 20 CPE points per year in order to be allowed to continue using the title.
PE registration ROs
The Permanent Education Register Operational Auditors Regulations came into effect on 1 July 2012 and were last updated on 1 July 2018. Actively operating ROs must submit their PE points via our website. The points from the previous year must be entered no later than 31 March of the following year.

The IIA performs an annual check on the registration of sufficient PE points. A number of ROs are asked to specify their achieved PE points and to substantiate them with evidence. The results are published annually. ROs that do not meet the PE obligation are given the opportunity to correct this within a reasonable period of time. If this is not complied with, the Board can take disciplinary action, which can lead to, among other things, the withdrawal of the right to use the RO title.
CPE registration CIA, CCSA, CFSA, CRMA, CGAP, QIAL
The CPE registration for CIA, CCSA, CFSA, CRMA, CGAP and QIAL certifications takes place in the United States. Registration goes directly through IIA Global. IIA Netherlands cannot assist you in this regard. To register your CPE points, log in to the IIA Global CCMS. For a comprehensive CCMS system manual, download this pdf.
If the CPE requirements are not met, this will lead to the withdrawal of the right to use the CIA, CCSA, CFSA, CRMA, CGAP or QIAL title.
The costs associated with the CPE registration are included in the IIA membership. Non-members pay $100 for the CPE registration of the CIA title and $25 for the other CPE registrations. These amounts are collected directly by IIA Global. You do not have to specify your CPE points, but you must be able to submit the evidence in the event of a check. For further information, please refer to the IIA Global website.
Gaining (C)PE points
The IIA Academy offers dozens of events every year that can assist you in obtaining (C)PE points. If you have complaints about an event, you can submit these using the Complaints procedure.
