CPE credit may be granted for each 50 minutes of participation in programs and activities that qualify. Fractional hours may also be granted if appropriate. At training events and conventions where individual presentations are less than and/or more than 50 minutes, the sum of the presentations should be considered as one total program. For example, two 90-minute, two 50-minute and three 40-minute presentations equal 400 minutes or eight CPE hours. Sponsors of CPE programs should monitor their programs to accurately assign the appropriate number of hours.

CDFM participants should receive CPE hours only for the actual time they attend the program. Preparation time for students participating in a CPE program is not counted. Further information on CPE as it relates to the CDFM is available under the Certification menu tab above.
