Basically speaking, our one-hour online classes get you one CPE or one ECE.

One should always refer to the governing body of their respective certification for specific CPE and ECE concerns.

CPEs, or Continuing Professional Education as explained by ISC2 [ISC2.org] are required to maintain your certification as outlined in their CPE policy and guideline.

“CPE credits are earned for experience exceeding that of normal on-the-job training or activities. Typically, education qualifying for CPE credits will be gained outside the workplace. If work is done as part of one’s normal job, that activity will not qualify for CPE credits, but any research done in association with that activity can qualify.” ISC2.org

For example, you can earn CPEs by coming to our one-hour online CISSP and CEH classes.  They are considered Class A credits, directly related to the certification subject matter. Computer-Based Training: Earn one CPE credit per hour of computer-based training.

The number of CPEs in a 3-year cycle depends on your certification and possible concentrations.

From ISC2, “CPE Credits for Concentrations: If you hold a CISSP concentration, 20 of the 120 credits required for the CISSP must be directly related to your concentration. If you hold more than one concentration, you must earn 20 credits in each area of concentration. CPEs required for a concentration are automatically counted toward the CISSP CPE requirement.
For example, if you hold an ISSAP and ISSMP, you must earn 20 credits related to the ISSAP domains and 20 credits toward the ISSMP domains. These 40 credits will automatically apply to the 120 credits required to renew your CISSP.”  From ISC2.org, CPE guidelines and policy:
