Continuing Education Policy and Forms

All non-designated Executive Members of NIPA are required to fulfill 10 hours of continuing education annually. The continuing education requirement to maintain the APA designation is 15 hours, and 10 hours are required to maintain the APR designation. Members are responsible for submitting their own continuing education credits to NIPA Headquarters, except for when attending NIPA-sponsored events. NIPA grants 1 CPE credit for every 50 minutes of continuing education that is submitted. 

Please Note: Credits submitted using the online submission tool below do not automatically appear in your profile. As with all other methods of credit submission, they will be reviewed by the NIPA Headquarters team before being posted for viewing online.

 

If you are in need of a CPE report, please allow NIPA 5 - 7 business days to obtain and send your updated report.
