Continuing Professional Education (CPE) For Training Programs
Through our partnership with the National Association of State Boards of Accountancy (NASBA), Computer Guidance is pleased to be able to offer continuing professional education (CPE) credits for completion of these courses. The recommended CPE credits for each course, along with the level of difficulty and field of study, are included in the detail information for the program.
If you are interested in receiving CPE credits for your participation in one of our courses, you are required to submit a CPE application form and course survey once the program of study is completed. Please consult with the instructor for the necessary links to complete these forms online.
In compliance with the most recent instructions provided by National Association of State Boards of Accountancy (NASBA), 1 CPE credit will be awarded for each hour of study completed with each full day of study equaling 8 CPE credits. Each program of study being offered has been audited to comply with the standards provided by NASBA. State boards of accountancy have final authority on the acceptance of individual courses for CPE credit.
Each session is labeled with a specific knowledge level and can be referenced in the following pages of the conference brochure. We recommend that participants have a basic understanding of eCMS applications for sessions that are identified as basic and overview, and an in-depth understanding of eCMS applications for sessions that are identified as intermediate and advanced.
- Basic - Program knowledge level most beneficial to CPAs new to a skill or an attribute. These individuals are often at the staff or entry level in organizations, although such programs may also benefit a seasoned professional with limited exposure to the area.
- Intermediate - Program knowledge level that builds on a basic program, most appropriate for CPAs with detailed knowledge in an area. Such persons are often at a mid-level within the organization, with operational and/or supervisory responsibilities.
- Advanced - Program knowledge level most useful for individuals with mastery of the particular topic. This level focuses on the development of in-depth knowledge, a variety of skills, or a broader range of applications. Advanced level programs are often appropriate for seasoned professionals within organizations; however, they may also be beneficial for other professionals with specialized knowledge in a subject area.
- Overview - Program knowledge level that provides a general review of a subject area from a broad perspective. These programs may be appropriate for professionals at all organizational levels.
- Update - Program knowledge level that provides a general review of new developments. This level is for participants with a background in the subject area who desire to keep current.
