State Board Report
As of March 1, 2014, sponsors of self-study courses that wish to remain on the NASBA National Registry of CPE Sponsors will need to qualify their programs under the new “QAS Self Study” designation. This is in line with the Statement of Standards for Continuing Professional Education Programs, as revised in January 2012, and is a significant change in requirements for those sponsors who previously had their self study courses listed on the Registry but not under the QAS (Quality Assurance Service), which calls for an in-depth evaluation of a sample program.
As of August 15, 2013, only 16 of the Registry’s self-study course sponsors held the QAS designation, with another 48 having a transition application in process, and 85 who had not yet acted to make the transition or who had been denied a transition application, NASBA CPE Committee Chair Bucky Glover (NC) reported to the National Registry Summit, held September 9-10 in Houston, TX.
Approximately 120 CPE sponsor representatives gathered for the Summit. Preconference workshops were held for new sponsors as well as for those in the QAS transition process.
