Financially fit people are avid readers and consistently invest in themselves by increasing their financial and leadership education, skills, experience, knowledge, and ability.
(PRWEB) December 16, 2014
CPEThink.com and LIFE Leadership have announced a new self-study option that is available to CPA professionals, including general practitioners, licensed professionals, Certified Public Accountants (CPAs), and others, who are working to fulfill their Continuing Professional Education (CPE) requirements that will help them maintain their professional competence and their ability to provide quality professional services. In order to retain their certification, all accounting professionals are required to earn a certain amount of CPE credits that satisfy the standards jointly issued by the National Association of State Boards of Accountancy (NASBA) and the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA).
CPEthink.com is an IRS-Approved Continuing Education Provider registered with NASBA as a Quality Assurance Service (QAS) Sponsor of Continuing Professional Education. Founded by CPAs, university professors, lecturers, and information systems professionals, CPEThink.com says it aims to empower accounting professionals by offering flexible, industry-leading online interactive self-study CPE courses and exams at a reasonable price. This newest course option will enable CPA professionals to earn twenty-two self-study CPE credits by completing the materials in LIFE Leadership’s ‘Financial Fitness Pack’ (a ‘Financial Fitness’ book and workbook plus eight audios) and passing an online exam covering the material. The CPE credit hours earned satisfy or exceed the updated AICPA/NASBA guidelines on self-study CPE activated in 2014 for all 50 states and US territories.
Chris Brady, Orrin Woodward, and the other owners of LIFE Leadership say they created the ‘Financial Fitness Pack’ materials to fill a gap they saw in the educational opportunities for learning all of the important basics and essential principles of how to properly manage one’s personal finances. They noticed that many educational institutions simply omitted or neglected the topic of personal finance, and the sources that did cover the subject often only focused on one particular area. Recognizing that this void had been a significant factor in causing many to be burdened with debt and financial stress, they set out to create materials that would make it easy and convenient to learn about all three key areas of personal finance—what they call the ‘Offense’ (making money), ‘Defense’ (budgeting and discipline), and ‘Playing Field’ (rules and philosophy of money)—and to have fun doing so. They say they believe strongly in the value of continued, self-directed education and are thrilled that in addition to helping individuals from all walks improve their finances, their materials will now be able to help accounting professionals satisfy their CPE requirements as well. In fact, Principle 9 of the forty-seven principles that they teach is: “Financially fit people are avid readers and consistently invest in themselves by increasing their financial and leadership education, skills, experience, knowledge, and ability.”
The ‘Financial Fitness Pack’ is available for purchase at lifeleadership.com. To get more information about registering and accessing the learning objectives, review questions, and final exam for the CPE course, visit http://www.CPEthink.com/ffcpe.
