    CPE are Continuing Professional Education credits, and can be earned many ways. The IMA hosts free webinars throughout the year, local chapters host meetings with relevant speakers, there are regional meetings and training, the National Convention, etc. In order to keep your CMA certificate active you need to complete a certain number of CPEs every year. I look at it as a way to stay current on changes in Accounting procedures (GAAP & IFRS), current topics in Management Accounting, even skill sets. I believe 2 CPEs must be in Professional Ethics each year also, but double check the IMA website on that. Hope that helped.
