IRE Security Continuing Education

Yes.  The annual Security Awareness Training that you complete each fall qualifies for one CPE for that fiscal year.  This fills the requirement for Level 1 IREs.  This fulfills one of three required CPEs for Level 2 IREs.  This fulfills one of six required CPEs for Level 3 IREs.

One unit of IRE continuing professional education (CPE) equals one contact hour. The term contact hour is defined as a 60-minute interval in which interactive learning takes place as part of a structured educational or training experience. The terms CPE unit, CPE hour, IRE CPE, or CPE refer to 60 minutes of continuing education credit— these terms are used interchangeably in these guidelines.

IREs should retain proof of participation for each of their education activities.  This can include a certificate of completion, states by the sponsoring body, or a copy of registration confirmation with course materials. Examples of documentation as a presenter may include the event program or agenda, correspondence with the sponsoring body, or copies of the material presented.
