CE for CPCU Status

Active and ongoing participation in the CE for CPCUs program determines a CPCU’s status. 

Active status: CPCUs who have completed 24 credits within the first two years of earning their designation and/or completed renewals within their ongoing two-year reporting windows.

Inactive status: If a renewal has not been completed before the reporting period ends, the CPCU is considered inactive but still remains a CPCU designation holder.
