INFO: CPE credit & Microsoft Azure Certification

imageA question I get asked a lot from CISSPs and CCSPs is:

  • Can I use Azure training classes or certifications toward CPE credit?

For certifications, according to the ISC2 CPE FAQ:

Q: If I earn another certification, can I get credit for passing the examination?

A: For obtaining a new credential, you may submit up to 30 CPEs under the self-study category for the time you spent preparing to obtain the new certification.

Additionally, for training courses that relate to your ISC certification, according to the “ISC2 Continuing Professional Education (CPE) handbook” page 14, there is a uniform cap of 40 hours per training.  Regarding documentation required for ISC2 audits:

Proof of CPE credits earned may be in the form of course transcripts, awarded diplomas, certificates or receipts of attendance, copies of official meeting minutes, or rosters or documentation of registration materials.
