All members who are not otherwise exempt from CPD for special circumstances (e.g., disability or family leaves longer than a year) are required to complete the mandatory professionalism module every two years, by December 31, in addition to other CPD requirements as outlined in the Qualification Standard.

The module, which is hosted on the CIA’s e-learning platform, includes the following required components:

  1. An introductory course.
  2. Professionalism case studies: you must choose two cases to complete.
  3. Required reading as defined by the CIA. A link to the readings is provided in the introductory course.
  4. A final attestation confirming that you have completed all aspects of the mandatory professionalism module.
  5. A certificate of completion, which will be generated after you complete the attestation.

Those who have become a CIA member within the past two years may choose to file that they are a new member and are not yet required to be CPD compliant. They are not required to complete this module.

Members who wrote an exam in the past two years and wish to file their compliance under that category must complete this module before they file, in order to be compliant.

If you cannot access the platform, please contact us at [email protected] to ensure that you have sufficient time to complete the module prior to year-end.

If you are a non-member of the CIA who does Canadian work and therefore needs to comply with the CIA’s CPD requirements, please contact [email protected].
