Our CPE accreditation ensures that our clients will not only achieve best practice standards and acquire confidence while mastering the SAP EPM and BPC software—they'll build organizational enthusiasm for EPM that extends well beyond implementation.
Scottsdale, Arizona (PRWEB) November 13, 2012
Column5 Consulting announced today that Column5 EPM Academy training has been approved as a registered sponsor on the National Registry of CPE Sponsors. EPM Academy training is now authorized to grant CPE credits for all of its SAP EPM and BPC training classes in all delivery methods, including Self-Study, Group-Live, and Group-Internet-Based courses.
“Financial software knowledge and skills are only valuable if comprehensive training is retained and applied in the real world,” said Jennifer Harlan, Column5’s Global Director of Training Solutions. “Our CPE accreditation ensures that our clients will not only achieve best practice standards and acquire confidence while mastering the SAP EPM and BPC software—they'll build organizational enthusiasm for EPM that extends well beyond implementation.”
Developed in 1990, the National Registry of CPE Sponsors is a program offered by the National Association of State Boards of Accountancy (NASBA) to recognize CPE program sponsors who provide continuing professional education (CPE) programs in accordance with nationally recognized standards. Many State Boards of Accountancy require CPAs to earn required CPE credits through companies approved on the National Registry of CPE Sponsors.
Column5 Consulting became qualified to extend CPE credit by meeting uniform standards established by NASBA for continuing education in the accounting profession, and is now registered nationally rather than having to register with individual State Boards of Accountancy. Approved learning providers, such as Column5 Consulting, are also deemed to be qualified continuing education providers by the IRS.
“I want to congratulate Jennifer Harlan and Column5's EPM Academy for raising our industry’s EPM training standards by consistently meeting the lofty requirements necessary to grant CPE credit for our exclusive SAP EPM and BPC course content,” said David Den Boer, CEO of Column5. “I invite SAP EPM and SAP BPC users to experience our industry-leading SAP EPM content, including SAP BPC training modules that have been globally recognized as more flexible and superior to alternative offerings.”
Column5 EPM Academy All Access subscribers will automatically receive the benefits of CPE accreditation as they continue to utilize their subscription and enjoy all of the latest enhancements to Column5’s training library. Interested parties may visit the Column5 EPM Academy for additional benefits and information.
