How long do the certifications remain valid?

IAPP certifications are valid for two years. To maintain your credential, you must meet two minimum requirements over the term of your certification:

  • Pay an annual certification maintenance fee (included in IAPP’s membership fee).
  • Fulfill 20 hours of continuing privacy education (CPE).

This is done by attending events, courses, talks, and performing other activities relating to the profession of Data Protection & Data Privacy.
