Operational policies are inclusive of all administrative and management functions of CPEE.

The CPEE grading system consists of three parts. The first set is the final grades awarded to a student as a result of study undertaken during a semester. CPEE uses a Criterion-Referenced System for awarding such grades where students are evaluated against an absolute scale. The second set is interim grades which indicate where a student is undertaking further assessment prior to being awarded a final grade in a Unit. The third set relates to grades awarded for study undertaken external to CPEE or for recognition of prior learning.
