Continuing Professional Education (CPE) Requirements


Once you become a CACM, you must complete 30 hours of continuing professional education each calendar year, including a minimum of three hours in the area of ethics. Since CPE hours reported are verified on a random basis, you should keep CPE certificates and other supporting documents for a minimum of three years.


On October 1, 2014, the AACI started to offer post-workshop Online test for each of its workshop / training programs.


Effectively from January 1, 2015, The AACI does not accept a CPE obtained through any workshop / training program  offered by the AACI unless it is evidenced by the post-workshop Online test PASS certificate.
