Claiming CPEs for CISM and CISA self study

Hi All,

 

I am claiming CPE for CISM and CISA exam that I cleared after CISSP. I have two questions here

 

1. What will be the end date for the CPE period? The exam day for the certs?

 

2. I am claiming group A points, however, in the Education tab, I don't see the self-study category. The categories provided are

(ISC)² Certification Course

(ISC)² Professional Development Institute (PDI) Course

Book, Magazine, Whitepaper

Courses and Seminars - Other

Higher Education Course

Industry ConferenceInformation security professional association chapter meeting

Online webinars, podcasts, and other online materials

Vendor Presentation

 

So which one should I choose to claim CPE for CISM and CISA exam study?

 

Thanks,

I don't think you can claim for sitting the exams themselves, but you can claim for the study prior to that.  It'd be wise to have evidence that you purchased the materials for this self study in case you're audited.  I'd think it would fit under education > courses and seminars - other.  Also you can only claim for study done after you got your CISSP or other ISC2 qualification.

Isn't that likely to confuse those who purchase the physical manuals and books for the ISACA exams?  

Often to study for an exam you need to have an extended period without any interruption and often being online is precisely the opposite of that; you're available for interruption and tempted by distractions.

Hi Steve,
I did check the courses and seminars category because I thought that would be appropriate for exams like these but seminars and courses category asks for the instructor and the dates of seminar/courses.

I was confused which category to put these CPEs in, but got the answer now.
Thanks for replying.
