Ethics is certainly not the average CPA’s favorite topic, and they are pleasantly surprised when a course holds their attention.
San Jose, CA (PRWEB) November 18, 2011
Most states have a mandatory ethics education requirement for licensed CPAs, although the topics differ from state to state. Some simply specify that the content focus on “professional” ethics vs. behavioral. Some require Ethics related specifically to the practice of accounting including coverage of American Institute of Certified Public Accountants Professional Code of Conduct. Others mandate that the material address the state’s own Public Accountancy Law and Regulations.
CPE Link has been working to release courses to satisfy the requirement of CPAs in all states. The CPE Link curriculum now has over 90% of the states covered (with the remainder under development).
“Ethics courses are an important component of CPE Link’s mission to provide accounting and financial professionals with quality continuing professional education,” said Sue Anderson, CPE Link executive director. "In order to provide a complete curriculum, we have to cover ethics since it is mandatory subject in so many states."
Ethics is certainly not the average CPA’s favorite topic, and they are often pleasantly surprised when an ethics course holds their attention. One attendee at a recent CPE Link live webinar commented, "I thought this was an excellent course. The case studies were interesting and relevant, and the time flew." Another appreciated the convenience of the online format: "Enjoyed the class. Very interactive. I also liked being able to take classes for CPE without having to leave the office."
To be even more attractive to its national audience, CPE Link will include the Ethics courses as part of its Value Pass and Firm Advantage Pass programs for best savings for both individuals and firms.
