Welcome to Continuing Professional Education

Continuing Professional Education (CPE) is ongoing training that is required in order to remain certified as a professional in certain fields.

Continuing Professional Education may be critical whether you are entering into a new profession or maintaining your present profession. CPE ensures your capabilities keep pace with the current standards of others in the same field – that your knowledge and skills stay relevant and up-to-date. If you hold a credential such as a degree, license or industry certification you may be required to take courses that fulfill the CPE obligation of a practicing professional.

CPE courses can help you:

  • Improve your professional competence.
  • Demonstrate that you have made efforts to maintain your competence.
  • Show that you comply with professional body regulations and accreditation.
  • Demonstrate your professional standing to clients and employers.
