Group A and Group B (ISC)² CPE Credits

Group A Credit: Domain-Related Activities. Group A credits relate directly to activities in the areas covered by the specific domains of the respective credential.

Group B Credits: Professional Development/Knowledge Sharing. Group B credits are earned for completion of general professional development activities which enhance a member’s overall professional skills, education, knowledge, or competency outside of the domains associated with the respective credentials. These generally include professional development programs, such as preparing for professional speaking (see under the heading “Calculating CPE Credits”) or management courses. While these do not apply directly to the domains, (ISC)² recognizes these skills are vital in the professional growth of all credentials holders.
