Continuing Professional Education (CPE 101)

So you've become a CFE...NOW WHAT?
Going forward, the rule of thumb is that every CFE must earn 20 hours of CPE per 12-month period and pay annual membership dues to stay current in their profession. CFE's are required to certify CPE compliance by the end of their anniversary month either (1) online or (2) by calling a National Associations ACFE Member Services Representative at (800) 245-3321 (USA & Canada only) or +1 (512) 478-9000. A CFE's anniversary month is the month membership is renewed each year.

Of the 20 CPE you are required to earn annually, at least 10 of these hours must relate directly to the detection and deterrence of fraud and 2 hours must relate directly to ethics. If a CFE has earned more than 20 hours of CPE in their previous reporting period, they may carry forward up to 10 of these extra hours to meet their current CPE requirements.
