Preferred CPE Provider Program

ASIS International Preferred CPE Provider Program

The ASIS Preferred CPE Provider Program offers organizations the opportunity to award pre-approved continuing professional education (CPE) credits for their security or business management-related continuing education offerings – and helps ASIS-certified security professionals easily identify non-ASIS activities that qualify toward their recertification CPEs.

For Certificants

Need to earn more CPEs? Search the Directory of Preferred CPE Providers and go to the providers’ websites to find the continuing education activities that have been pre-approved by ASIS. Each activity will be identified with an ASIS Preferred CPE Provider logo. If you attend any of these activities and self-report, your CPEs will be approved.

For Organizations

Interested in becoming a Preferred CPE Provider?

If the learning objectives of your organization’s course offerings align with the bodies of knowledge for the APP, CPP, PCI, and/or PSP, your organization can be awarded Preferred CPE Provider status.

The Program offers two options for organizations that provide educational programs:

  1. ASIS Annual Preferred CPE Provider – for organizations that offer multiple educational activities a year.

  2. ASIS One-Time Preferred CPE Provider Event - for organizations for which only one educational activity has been approved by ASIS.

For ASIS Chapters

As an approved Preferred CPE Provider, you can help chapter members earn CPEs—guaranteed in advance—as well as give your chapter’s educational programs added visibility. Learn more and apply today.
