Don't know but somehow I got super busy and distracted between January 2020 and now.  Actually quite a bit of it is due to the COVID-19 occurrence which derailed normal trend line of activities.  Nonetheless, it just so happens that I need to amass 120 CPEs to keep a major certification alive.  Major whopper 

As always, you all rock for your tips, suggestions, or resources on how to make this happen!

    If you cannot get them from training (my #1 go-to), then you can do:

    - webcasts (SANS is my preference https://www.sans.org/webcasts/)
    - ISC2 magazine/quizzes (https://www.isc2.org/member-resources/infosecurity-professional-magazine?membercontent=true)
    - self-study for any exam/subject related to the certification
    Alphabet soup: CISSP, CCSP, CISM, CISA, GDSA, GPEN, GCIA, GCIH, GCCC, CEH, Azure Fundamentals, Azure Security Engineer Associate, ITIL 4 Foundation, and more.

    2020 goals: AZ-900, AZ-500, GDSA, ITILv4

    Attend security conferences via webcasts. Eight hours attended equals 8 CPEs.

    How do you document proof for the self-study?  The first two are golden.

    For example, while preparing for the AZ-900 I went through the recommended Microsoft material which took about 10 hours so I logged it as you can see in the attached image and it was accepted by ISC2. With providers that do not require a printout (ISACA, ISC2) I just calculate the hours I have spent on self-study for an exam and submit the CPEs which always get accepted in my case. But even if they weren't it wouldn't be a problem for me since I get so many CPEs from continuous training. In the case of EC-Council I do not record the amount of time I spent studying because they have a set criteria for passing certifications so I just upload the certificate to claim CPEs.

    Webcasts are easy CPEs and you can really load up with 5 months to go. For proof, I screenshot a before image of the webcast, and then a during image to submit as proof. For before, I tend to use a confirmation email that includes the date somewhere in the shot.
