Continuing Professional Education - Frequently Asked Questions

What is continuing professional education?

Continuing professional education is used by accounting, finance, and tax professionals to maintain their license, competency and expertise. Accounting professionals earn one CPE credit for every 50 minutes of approved coursework. 

Who needs CPE credits?

CPE, or Continuing Professional Education, is required for all CPAs in order to maintain a license to practice. CPE courses are also required to maintain the CMA, EA, CEP, CIA, CISA, and CFA credentials. All professionals are responsible for complying with all CPE requirements, rules, and regulations.

Why do I need continuing education?

CPE for CPAs is essential because it ensures that public accountants remain up-to-date on best practices. You don't need to be a CPA for CPE to be an essential part of your professional career - it is also required for licensed CMAs and recommended for unlicensed tax preparers and other accounting professionals.

How do you earn CPE credits?

First, find a reliable CPE provider, such as Becker. Then, make sure when you choose a CPE course, that it will count toward your required professional education. Some popular ways to earn CPE credits include seminars, workshops, live webinars, webcasts, conferences, and on-demand courses. 

Register for our free CPE course demo now.

Can I earn CPE credits online?

Yes, it is possible to earn online CPE for CPAs and other professional accountants. Becker offers a variety of CPE online courses. Review our course catalog to find the course that best fits your needs. 

Do I need to provide certificates of completion for courses?

The short answer is yes. When fulfilling your CPE requirements, you must remember to keep your certificates of completion. If you are a CPA, it is recommended to keep your CPE certificates for at least 5 years. State Boards can perform a routine audit at any time looking for proof of course completion. If you are a CPA and need to know how to submit your CPE certificates of completion to your state board, click here. If you are a CMA and need more information on how to submit your CPE certificates, click here.
 

Do CPE credits expire?

This answer depends on the license or certification. Some states don’t have an expiration date on CPE credits, but the time frame is defined differently based on the state. Please check with your state board for the latest rules. 
 

Can I carry forward CPE credits into the next year?

If you are a CPA, the excess hours up to a maximum of 60 CPE credit hours may be carried over into the next year. This is applied up to 20 hours per year and can vary by state. If you are a CMA, up to 10 CPE credit hours can be carried forward.

Ready to get started on those CPE credits for the year? Browse our continuing professional education course catalog.
