How the CIFE Earns You CPA Professional Development Hours
The Certified Islamic Finance Executive (CIFE) earns you professional development hours towards your CPA (Certified Public Accountant). That means you earn 20 CPD (Continuing Professional Development) credits right away once you complete your CIFE. These credits get you hired and promoted:
- CPD Credits Maintain Your License: CPD credits are a requirement to maintain licenses for certified public accountants and many other professionals.
- CPD Credits Strengthen Your Qualification: Employers value candidates that bring third-party qualifications to the job. The CIFE was already AAOIFI-compliant; now it is NASBA-compliant as well.
- CPD Credits are Internationally Recognized: NASBA is the National Association of State Boards of Accountancy, an accredited third-party body recognized across the globe.

Officially recognized by AAOIFI (pronounced “a-yo-fee”), the world’s leading standard-setting body in Islamic finance, Ethica's award-winning Certified Islamic Finance Executive (CIFE) and Advanced CIFE (ACIFE) earn you continuing professional development (CPD) credits
