What is the continuing education (CE)requirement?
You need 10 CE credits each year to maintain your CPSA. CPSE credits may be obtained by attending Privacy + Security Academy courses, events, or programs as well as those of other organizations. We maintain a list of pre-approved CPSE events on our website. For non pre-approved CE courses, events, or programs, you must submit information about the course/event/program via our website, and we will evaluate and determine the eligibility.
How can I maintain my CPSA certification?
The CPSA certification is valid for one year. Each year you will be required to do the following three steps to maintain your certification,:
- Submit an application for renewal with your current contact information.
- Complete 10 credits of continuing education (CE) in privacy and security law.
- Pay the annual certification renewal fee of $99.
Do I have to keep records of my own CE credits?
Yes. You must retain documentation in your own records in the event you are randomly selected for a CPE audit for up to two years after submission.
