CPE Points

The world of Security and Business Continuity is changing fast due to new technologies and cyber threats. To ensure continuous competence and knowledge development, our Practitioner, Expert and Certified Officer certifications require recertification every three years.

Each certification level requires a certain number of Continuing Professional Education (CPE) hours over an annual and three-year-period. This requirement must be met in order to retain your certification.

Practitioner certifications

The Practitioner certifications require a minimum of 20 CPE credits yearly (60 in the three-year certification cycle). The yearly renewal price is € 40,- excluding VAT.

Expert certifications

The Expert certifications require a minimum of 40 CPE credits yearly (120 in the three-year certification cycle). The yearly renewal price is € 75,- excluding VAT.

Certified Officer/Leader certifications

The Certified Officer and Leader certifications require a minimum of 40 CPE credits yearly (120 in the three-year certification cycle). The yearly renewal price is € 75,- excluding VAT.

Calculation of CPE points

One CPE point equals 60 minutes spent on continuous education. Continuous education activities can be activities such as teaching, writing books and articles, attending internal and external courses, seminars, conferences, congresses and technical meetings, and taking note of information from journals and literature about developments within your area of expertise.
