CIMA® CE Library

Helping CIMA certificants meet their CIMA certification CE obligation

 

The Forum CIMA CE Library allows CIMA certificants to earn CE hours - at no cost and at any time 24/7 - to help meet your obligation as a CIMA certificant, as well as the CE/CPD requirements of 15 regulators, associations, institutes and designations.

Within one to three business days of you completing a CIMA CE Quiz successfully, your CE accreditation will be logged and tracked for you on your Forum MyCE record. The Forum will then report the CIMA CE hours to IMCA International on your behalf so they appear in your MyIMCA record within a further two to three US business days.
