Any approval for distance educational activities issued by the Commission remains in effect until future notice. 

Institutions not currently approved by CPE for a distance education modality can complete the CPE distance education course approval form for authorization unless it is prohibited in statute.  If the institution is accredited, the institution must also seek approval from the accrediting body for the change in modality. Please ensure that CPE receives the request to the accrediting body with the authorization forms.  This will help speed the approval process.


For institutions approved for the VA Educational program, please visit for more information about distance education approvals and certification information.


All in person services to the CPE office has been suspended until further notice. Please contact staff via email or phone with any questions.


All extensions resulting from Directive 009 (Revised) expired on September 28, 2020.
