​Continuing Professional Education (CPE) Requirements for Qualification in Internal Audit Leadership® (QIAL®)

Each year, QIAL certificate holders are required to self-certify as to the completion of the required continuing education hours. The number of CPE hours to be reported is based on certification statuses of practicing, non-practicing, retired, inactive (grace period), or inactive. It is the QIAL’s responsibility to assure that the CPE hours claimed conform to the guidelines established by The IIA’s Professional Certification Board (PCB). CPE reporting forms are submitted by QIALs on an annual basis (no later than December 31 each year) and serve as signed statements that all applicable CPE requirements have been met.

For complete information regarding the CPE requirements for QIAL certificate holders, please review the CPE Policy.

Newly Certified?

New QIALs are awarded 40 CPE hours. Half of the awarded CPE hours (20) are for the year in which the exam is passed, and the other half are for the subsequent year.
