A professional’s credentials as a CMA is a leading global credential in management accounting and the global benchmark for management accountants & finance professionals. In order to maintain that, the IMA has enforced and regulated the requirements to earn CPE credits to ensure that Certified Management Accountants are continually educated and up to date in the profession.
Fulfilling your CMA CPE requirements is critical and thirty (30) hours of CMA CPE credits are required each year coming from plenty of qualifying course topics to choose from, such as accounting, financial management, business law, organization, business applications of mathematics, software/computing systems, economics, management, production, marketing, and more. There must also be a minimum of 2 Ethics credits included in the annually earned CPE.
Where to get them all, is the main question. Here we have highlighted some of the points that will help you decide how to choose the best CPE provider for yourself.
What makes myCPE the best place for IMA approved CPE course provider:
CPE credits on myCPE are available for an unmatched price of $10 to $15 per credit, while taking courses from IMA will cost anywhere between $30 to $90 per credit. To further bring down the overall cost of continuing education, myCPE has a 30 CPE package for CMA (Compliant with IMA and including Ethics) that helps you get all your CPE credits at one place.
Also, IMA website does not host the courses of their own but they are lent by other course providers that charge very hefty and the package structures are often confusing.
Besides being the top CPE provider for CMA professionals, myCPE also houses courses for 100+ other qualifications including CPA, EA, CFP, CIA, CFF, CFE, CITP, ABV, PFS, CVA, CISA, TEP, etc. While the course options on IMA site are limited, and dedicated for just one qualification, CMA.
You must note that the CMA certification is designed to complement other credentials or degrees which means that the holders of CMA title have varied skills and expertise. Sounds great but the real problem arises while searching for eligible courses that can fulfil CPE requirements of all the other courses together. Most people are bound to switch between platforms and jump from one site to another for CPE and often end up spending hefty sums of money.
You may also find Combo packages for CPA, CMA & CIA that can cater to the CPE needs of these three titles at one place.
