Current Certified Members FAQs

Many of the answers to questions regarding the continuing education requirements are found on the CMI / CCIP CE Information page.
  
Q. What non-IPT courses are accepted for CPE credit?
A.    IPT does not list specific approved courses, but a description of acceptable courses can be found on the Continuing Education Requirements document for each designation, which can be accessed here.
 
Q. How do I submit non-IPT Continuing Education?
A.    Fill out the Non-IPT Continuing Education Credit Application

Q. Is there a deadline for submitting continuing education?
A.    There is no longer a deadline and you may submit any CE earned during your current five-year term. However, we do ask that you submit your CE yearly so that your status report remains current.

Q. How do I access my CMI or CCIP CE Status Report?
A.    Follow the directions below and you will receive a copy of your status report by email within 5 - 10 minutes. 

  • Login to the IPT website
  • Click on your name in the top right-hand corner
  • Click on the "CMI / CCIP Members" tab
  • Click the link and fill out the form 

Q. What happens to my certification if my membership becomes inactive or I change employers?
A. A member's certification remains active for six months after his or her membership becomes inactive.  If membership is reactivated within the six-month grace period, the member's certification is unaffected.  Once the certification is changed to inactive status, however, the member must submit the Application to Reactivate Designation along with all required CE documentation and fees.  Full details on the required CE to reactivate your designation are available on the CMI / CCIP CE Information page. 

Q. Is there a maximum number of hours awarded for one program?
A. Yes.  A maximum of 30 hours credit is awarded for an individual program, including an IPT program.
