CPEs for a PCI assessment

 Having led my team through a number of successful PCI assessments I am wondering anyone knows if I can use some of this time to claim CPEs against my CISSP qualification?

Re: CPEs for a PCI assessment

I think that is a no. CPEs are regarded to count towards your own professional education/development and not educating others or professional activities. The only exception to that, I believe, is preparation of presentations/workshops where significant research can be considered knowledge acquisition.

We recently updated the CPE handbook - this might be helpful!

I think the answer here, is it depends.  Did you have to take some special training to take on this effort?    Was this a special assignment?  Will you perform this task again for this employer? Etc.

 

Several years ago, the Scheme Committee (a committee that evaluates and also makes recommendations to the board on the credentials on things like CPEs that are ANSI accredited) made a recommendation that special work projects might be claimed towards one's credential.

 

That effort was lead by @TrickyDicky and should be fully documented in the Handbook that @Kaity points to.  Unfortunately the site is down for maintenance at the moment, so will need to follow up tomorrow.

 

My suggestion, check the manual and if still unclear, check with Member Services.

@timmulcahy 

 

I believe this is the section in the CPE manual that might be appropriate to answer your question.

 

Hope this helps
