Re: Minimum annual CPE requirements

We are interested in documentation.


The official documentation on all things CPE is the CPE handbook, freely available online Here is the relevant quote from page 5:

 

As a certified (ISC)² member, you are required to earn and submit CPE credits each year of your three-year certification cycle. The total number of CPE credits earned within a three-year cycle must add up to the minimum CPE credits required during a three-year certification cycle. (ISC)² has a suggested annual minimum to help you balance maintaining your certification. 

You might also take a look at page 3 of the 2015 edition for historical context.

I think the point @ZeroFactor is making is the wording in the CPE Handbook is contradictory and is therefore ambiguous.

The sentences I've highlighted above in red and blue are an example of this and show two contradictory statements. The sentence in red is just wrong and should be removed or reworded.

 

Also, as was pointed out earlier in the thread, there is a table in the CPE Handbook where it says "Total Required" when adding up the "Suggested Annual" Group A and / or B CPEs which is causing confusion.

 

EDIT: although this is not documentation @lmartin clarifies this question in the webinar below - skip to 07:30:

Re: Minimum annual CPE requirements

@AlecTrevelyan Thank you for adding me to the thread. To confirm, we are no longer enforcing the annual CPE requirements; they are now listed as suggested. All members are required to submit the three-year CPE requirements by the end of their three-year certification cycles. Depending on which certification you hold, your requirements will be different. 

 

Example: CISSP

By the end of the three-year cycle, a CISSP member must have a total of 120 CPEs submitted with at least 90 being Group A (domain related). 

 

The suggested annual CPEs to obtain are 40, but are not required (40x3=120)

 

Best Regards,
