Continuing Privacy Education

Maintaining Your Certification

Privacy issues continue to change, and it’s more important than ever to stay ahead of the curve. That’s why we require Continuing Privacy Education (CPE).


To stay certified you’ll need to complete at least 10 hours of CPE per year. You’ll also need to keep your IAPP membership, at any level, up to date. You’ve already earned a global credential that sets you apart, now keep it polished.
