IPE Requirements

To maintain your CBIM certification, you are required to earn a minimum of 150 IPEs during each three-year certification cycle, including a minimum number of 40 IPEs that must be earned annually.


All IPE activities must be completed or earned during the three years of each certification cycle and no later than your certification expiration date (the end of your certification cycle). Following your certification expiration date, you are allowed a 90-day grace period to complete the submission of all your IPEs, but they must be earned by the expiration date.


At the end of your three-year certification cycle, when you meet both your required IPEs and Annual Maintenance Fee (AMF) payments, your renewal to a new three-year certification cycle will be processed. You will receive a renewal package via postal mail, which includes a new certificate and IICIE ID card.
