Please Note: The AIPI has a Continuing Professional Education (CPE) requirement for all members of AIPI (except for Retired Members). The minimum number of hours for CPE is 12 every financial year, which can be achieved from attendance at AIPI meetings, webinars, conferences relating to investigations, training courses, papers, investigative news articles etc. As part of AIPI membership requirements, we expect members to keep a formal record of CPE hours and type of CPE achieved.  This can be recorded directly within your membership record or held in a separate document. By applying to become a member you are agreeing to achieve a min of 12 hours of CPE every financial year. Approximately 10 members are randomly chosen and audited every year.
