Certified Identity and Security Technologist

sample certificate

22 Illumeo Courses meet the standards set by The Identity Management Institute (IMI) for Certified Identity and Security Technologist CPE. Certified professionals must earn continuing education (IMI), adhere to the IMI code of ethics, and be active members.

By our reading of this standard we believe learners can count their professionally relevant, verifiable learning activities on Illumeo, including taking on demand courses and attending live webinars, toward fulfillment of their verifiable CIST CPE requirements. However, if there is any question, we recommend that the individual learner confirm with his/her professional licensing organization before taking Illumeo courses for CIST CPE credit.

You can manage your Illumeo CPE/CPD certificates and credits through your certificate dashboard which is available when you are logged in to your account (log in now to go there). You can download your certificates as pdfs or email them to yourself at any time. All CPE/CPD certificates earned through Illumeo will be available through this dashboard.


CIST CPE Requirements and Illumeo Learning Activities

According to the IMI Standard for Certified Identity and Security Technologist CPE, CISTs must attain and report a minimum of sixty (60) CPE hours for every 3 year period and at least 15 hours each year. Each hour of qualified activity is considered one hour of CPE and may be applied to more than one certification. CPE may include activities as they relate to Critical Risk Domains (CRD) for this certification.

Critical Risk Domains

The following Critical Risk Domains (CRDs) are developed by IMI and define the specific areas used for CIST training, testing and certification. These CRDs change as risks evolve:

  • Strategy and Analysis
  • Planning and Design
  • Transition and Implementation
  • Communication
  • Leadership

As an accredited provider of Continuing Professional Education (CPE) in the United States, Illumeo’s online learning platform, courses, and webinars meet the requirements set forth by the Institute of Management Accountants (IMA), an IFAC Member Organization, as well as the National State Boards of Accountancy (NASBA) and the Institute of Internal Auditors (IIA), both IFAC Affiliates.

Therefore, we believe learners can count their professionally relevant, verifiable learning activities on Illumeo, including taking on demand courses and attending live webinars, toward fulfillment of their verifiable CIST CPE requirements. However, if there is any question, we recommend that the individual learner confirm with his/her professional licensing organization before taking Illumeo courses for CIST CPE credit.
