Access CPE Reporting Requirements
Report CPE
The IIA Certification Registry

CPE/CPD credits are required for end-of-year reporting to keep your IIA certification(s) active. The reporting deadline is Dec. 31 each year. North America members report CPE for free.

Don’t Miss Out on Being Included in The IIA Certification Registry

All individuals who have earned an IIA certification and maintain it by reporting CPE/CPD are eligible to opt in to The IIA Certification Registry. This up-to-date record provides an opportunity for employers and recruiters to verify your certification. The registry will only include the following: certification holder’s first and last name; certificate ID; certification status; country of residence. Inclusion in the registry is voluntary.

If you do not report, your certification/qualification goes inactive, and as a result, you are no longer approved to represent yourself as a certified individual nor be listed in the registry.

Ethics CPE Requirement

Two of your CPE/CPD credits must be earned in ethics. To help with this requirement, The IIA is offering Ethics for Internal Auditors and Code of Ethics Conformance through OnDemand training. Participants can save on the OnDemand courses when purchased as part of The IIA’s Ethics Essentials course bundle.

Take advantage of these CPE-earning opportunities below:


From 24/7 OnDemand courses to in-depth seminars, there are a variety of training options for earning required CPE/CPDs.
