    CPA CPE State Requirements: A Comprehensive Guide

    Without a doubt, one prominent method for demonstrating capability and trustworthiness in the accounting profession is membership with the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA). Standing at nearly 418,000 members and operating in 143 countries worldwide, AICPA membership is the hallmark of an elite accountant, and becoming CPA certified through the organization can positively impact an individual's career in multiple ways.

    The National Association of State Boards of Accountancy (NASBA), a sister organization to AICPA, lists at least five reasons for obtaining and maintaining a CPA license:

    • Prestige and Respect
    • Career Development
    • Career Security
    • Job Satisfaction
    • Money and Benefits

    Apart from the organizational and monetary benefits that often accompany licensure as a Certified Public Accountant (CPA), the years of academic and technical training required to obtain this prestigious designation afford licensees a wealth of experience that accurately demonstrates their expertise and dedication to the profession. However, as might be surmised, the path to certification is often difficult and, in many respects, can be somewhat frustrating.

    Maintaining Your License with CPE Requirements

    Navigating the complexities of a professional certification or designation can be arduous for any career field, and maintaining a CPE license is no different, particularly as each state in the U.S. has a unique set of requirements for renewal. Depending on the state in question, a license can last anywhere from one to three years before requiring recertification. This period is known as the CPE Reporting Period, in which the licensee must obtain Continuing Professional Education (CPE) credits, and is meant to ensure that CPAs remain up-to-date in their knowledge and practices to maintain professional competence and provide quality service.

    How to Complete Your CPA CPE Requirements

    One of the most common methods for earning CPE credit as a Certified Public Accountant is by taking courses from providers who are part of NASBA's National Registry of Approved CPE Sponsors. Generally, these courses are provided in an online format and are worth varying amounts of credit, dependent on the length of the course. It should also be noted that many state Boards accept university or college course credit, and in almost all instances, a semester hour is worth 15 credit hours. CPE courses, whether taken from an approved sponsor or university, must comply with state-specific subject area requirements in order to count as appropriate continuing education opportunities, largely in the areas of accounting, auditing, and taxation.

    Another prominent means of obtaining CPE credit is by attending various events, meetings and conferences. Like courses, some of the many events hosted throughout any given year will offer an online or webinar attendance option, though not all offer such accommodations. However, since conferences are held in many regions of the U.S., CPAs looking for recertification credit through attendance should typically have several options within their general vicinity.

    After the necessary credit amount has been obtained during the CPE Reporting Period, the licensee is able to seek recertification. Renewal of a CPA license is handled by each state's Board of Accountancy, and as such, some of the processes may differ according to geographic location. However, the general requirements for most states include reporting CPE credits along with the necessary documentation and paying the required renewal fees (which likewise vary by state).
