The period between successful completion and the following January 1 is a grace period. CPE is not required during this period, but any CE earned during this period can be counted as being earned in the first reporting period.

CMAs must report the CPE hours they complete each year. However, you do not need to submit supporting documents unless you’re audited. Normally, you can just use the member profile section on the IMA website to organize and record your CPE hours. All courses you take through the IMA itself will automatically show up in that section.

A CMA who is over 55 years of age and retired from the profession of management accounting/ financial management is exempt from the CPE requirements.
