Do I need to retake the AICPA ethics course?

So, I passed the CPA exams two years ago, and also passed the AIPCA ethics exam. Now, I have the experience needed to apply for CPA, but I was wondering if I need to retake the ethics exam. Does the score ever expire (for Virginia)?

I’m not talking about the state specific ethics exam (the shorter one). I will be taking this prior to applying.

Also, do I need any CPE prior to applying? Virginia required 120 CPE every 3 years, but I’m not sure if you are supposed to meet this requirement from the moment you apply.

Thank you for any information.
