NASBA, AICPA look to revise accountant CPE standards

The Nashville-based National Association of State Boards of Accountancy and the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants are taking public comments until mid-October on a number of proposed revisions to the continuing education requirements for CPAs. Most changes would add flexibility to the process.

Significant revisions are in the areas of group internet based learning and self-study programs; issuance requirements for half credits under self study programs; promotional/course announcement information for in-house training programs and alternate methods for calculating CPE credits for self-study programs.
