Continuing Professional Education

There is a Continuing Professional Education (CPE) policy in respect of qualified CISM professionals. The goal of this policy is to ensure that all CISAs maintain an adequate level of current knowledge and proficiency in the field of information systems audit, control and security.

CISMs who successfully comply with the ‘continuing professional education policy will be better trained to assess information systems and technology and provide leadership and value to their organisations’. The responsibility for setting the CPE requirements rests with the CISM Certification Board which oversees the process and requirements to ensure their applicability.

Maintenance fees and a minimum of 20 contact hours of CPE are required annually. In addition a minimum of 120 contact hours are required during a fixed three-year period. Please see the Maintain Your CISM page on ISACA’s website for further details.
