For individuals who hold multiple certifications, the CPE hours earned for attending another board certification may be applied toward their required CPE hours for the first certification earned. In other words, if a practicing individual holds both the CECI and CPCI, and completes 30 hours of training related to fraud and investigations, those hours can be used to satisfy the CPE requirements for both the CECI and CPCI.

More information regarding educational program criteria, how CPE hours are measured, acceptable curriculum, and other activities for which certified individuals can earn CPE hours are provided in the section below on Qualifying CPE Activities.
