About CPIA Recertification by Continuing Education

To recertify by continuing education (CE), CPIAs must complete 50 hours of eligible CE hours as described in the recertification guidelines.

  • At least 40 of the 50 hours of continuing education credit required for recertification must cover IACUC-administration related topics listed in the CPIA Body of Knowledge/Content Outline. Up to 10 hours can be on professional development topics not directly related to IACUC administration (examples include leadership/management training and general laboratory animal science topics).
  • Credit hours must be earned in at least two of the categories described below.
  • No more than 30 continuing education hours may be earned in a single category with the exception of the additional restrictions noted under categories 9 (exam items) and 12 (local or regional IACUC administration-related networking group meetings).
  • Credit hours must be earned within the current five-year certification period.
  • Continuing education activities scheduled after the application deadline (but before certification lapse date) may be counted toward recertification. Candidates are responsible for sharing attendance information upon completion of the program.
