Continuing Education

Maintaining your CMI/CCIP designation has never been easier.  Designated members of IPT can utilize the barcode scanning at IPT programs to receive continuing education credit (CPE).  Upon successful scanning of their badges, credit hours are  uploaded to the CMI/CCIP continuing education status report. IPT will also process this data and provide a Certificate of Attendance.  Designated members are responsible for scanning their badges at every session.  Credit cannot be awarded after the program without scanned documentation. Your attention to this matter will help us continue to improve and maintain the integrity of our educational programs. Please allow 2-3 weeks for your continuing education status report to update and reflect your attendance at a recent IPT program.
