Inclusion of additional way to earn CPE hours and removal of duplicative subsections
Action 4932
General Information
Action Summary Since 2011, the CPE requirements for CPAs—regardless of whether the type of work they perform—have been the same, unless granted an exemption from the CPE requirements by the Board. The proposed amendment repeals in part and amends in part so that there is a single subsection addressing general CPE requirements, instead of two. The proposed amendment provides an additional way for CPAs to earn CPE hours, as already permitted under Board policy.
