Continuing Education Policy & Forms

Continuing Education Policy and Forms

NIPA 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.

 

Credits submitted using NIPA's online submission tool 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 added to your profile.

To view a current and historical list of your accepted CPE credits, sign into your NIPA profile and click on the Manage Profile link in the top right corner of the page. In your profile, select the Profile Home link.
