CPE Opportunities for writing articles

I started writing articles on linkedin. Can you get CPE credits for writing a monthly article and if so how many and how do you submit.

Asked support, but the question just directed me back to the handbook.

Dont want to go down a path that could hurt me if I am wrong.

I recommend, that you keep evidence for the CPE you are claiming as Management can and will audit CPEs from time to time.  My experience only, is that it is within six months but others may have different experience.

 

When claiming CPEs, you typically can claim the number equivalent to the amount of work (that is, if you spend an hour writing, you may claim an hour).

 

As to calculating the number of CPEs, I typically follow the rules on Page 14 of the CPE Handbook (typically one hour of work equals 1 CPE).

 

Submit CPEs through the portal.

 

Hope this helps

You can always write for the (ISC)2 blog to earn CPE credits as well. 🙂 

 

@dcontesti has also contributed to our blog before.

Thanks Andrea

 

I was busy with something and see that you beat me to the punch on the blog.

 

As well as Blogging, one can also write for the Journal or volunteer to teach cyber awareness.

 

There are really no limits to the things that folks can do to collect CPEs.

 

If writing is not your thing, read the journal and take the quizzes.  Watch some of the online training available on the (ISC)2 website via Continuing Education.  Volunteer to become an Item Writer for one of the exams (one can earn up to 21 CPEs for this)

 

Again hope this helps.

I agree. There are alot of opportunities. Was initially concerned about not having enough opportunities, but I am starting to realize it is going to be hard not to meet the 120 then the other way around.

 

Thanks,

Can we quote you on that somewhere? 🙂 

 

Yes, there are MANY opportunities to earn CPE credits and we have lists on our website. The best approach is to keep track of them while you earn them and not try to cram three years worth of CPE credits in within a week of the due date.

Yup. OCD.
