Individuals studying abroad may be uncertain of how to convert their European Credit Transfer System (ECTS) to their ASIS recertification requirements. As a general rule of thumb, ECTS may transfer in on a rate of 2:1.
ASIS suggests the following as a guide:
30 ECTS credits are equivalent to 15 US semester credits (approximately 15 CPEs for a full semester)
Note: Security/management-related accredited college courses may be claimed and computed at the rate of 7 CPE credits for each semester hour completed.
ASIS uses the Continuing Professional Education (CPE) system as the standard of measure to calculate continuing professional development.
