State Board Report

December 2013

Students who want to demonstrate that they have learned their ethics lessons will be able to earn a certificate through the NASBA Center for the Public Trust’s (CPT) Ethics Certification Program. Developed by outstanding ethics educators, Drs. O.C. and Linda Ferrell of the University of New Mexico, and reviewed by other members of the CPT Board of Directors, the six-module online program requires students to pass examinations at the conclusion of each part with a grade of 80 percent or more. Each module has a viewing time of 12-17 minutes.

Alfonzo Alexander, CPT President, announced that the program is first being used by Florida State University for their executive MBA program, and five other schools are expected to sign up for the CPT certification program by the end of the semester. CPA firms have also indicated their interest in the program for their staff members. Professors will be able to sign up their entire class at one time, Mr. Alexander said. The program’s fee for members of a CPT Student Chapter is $40, and $80 for non-members.
