CPD Types

CPD credits may include verifiable and/or non-verifiable credits.

Verifiable CPD credits are those, which are easily proven such as a receipt to a fraud conference, which clearly displays the name of the organization, which sponsored the conference, the conference type, topics or subjects attended, and the date of the conference.

Non-verifiable CPD credits would be those where a member developed a seminar and then subsequently presented it. The time to develop the seminar would not be verifiable whereas the duration of the seminar would most likely be determinable.

Qualifying Programmes

Formal programmes which contribute to the member’s professional competence. Examples of qualifying programmes are in-house training courses, university or college credit courses or other such programmes, law enforcement training sessions, seminars or conferences or fraud-related sessions (See Exclusions) as they relate to auditing, accounting, investigation, fraud prevention and detection, fraud theory, ethics and law.

An unlimited number of these credits may be claimed during a 12-month period.


Continuing professional development credits must be germane to the jurisdiction of the member.

Any subjects, such as investigation and law, which are not relevant within the area of the member’s practice, will not be accepted.
