Continuing Professional Education (CPE)
There is a Continuing Professional Education (CPE) policy in respect of qualified CRISC professionals. The goal of this policy is to ensure that all CRISCs maintain an adequate level of current knowledge and proficiency in the field of information systems audit, control and security. CRISCs 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 organizations.’ The responsibility for setting the continuing professional education requirements rests with the CRISC Certification Board, which oversees the continuing professional education 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 CRISC page on the ISACA website for further details.
