State Board Report

February 2016

April 30, 2016 is the new deadline for comments on the revised Statement on Standards for Continuing Professional Education (CPE) Programs. The NASBA Board of Directors and AICPA Board of Directors voted to re-expose the standards at their meetings in January at the request of the CPE Standards Working Group. The revised exposure draft includes changes based on comments submitted during the previous vetting.

"We believe the revisions to the Standards have been enhanced by the most recent round of changes and will keep CPE relevant and meaningful to CPAs," Maria Caldwell, NASBA Director of Compliance Services, stated.

Among the enhancements are: clarification of acceptable instructional materials for a nano-learning program; classification of programs; and independent study verification.
