Continuing professional education, or CPE, represents the ongoing education and training received by certified individuals. Each unit of CPE represents one 50-minute session of face-to-face training or an estimated 50-minute session of self-study. Sessions must be approved by the organization issuing the certification in order for the time to qualify for credit. Each organization maintains the records and performs random audits of certified individuals to ensure that the requirements are met.

NYIC provides CPE credit for all educational programs. In order to receive credits, you must first register for the event or workshop, then sign-in/out on-site, and finally login to the NYIC website after the event to access your certificate. Questions can be directed to Chelsea Seres at

NYIC also provides CIRA and CTP credit for education programs. On occasion we are able to offer CLE, but that is not standard and we encourage you to inquire prior to an event to find out if CLE is available.
