State Board Report

September 2016

NASBA has launched its re-designed website to clearly direct users to information either for State Boards, CPAs, Current Sponsors or those CPE providers interested in Becoming a Sponsor. includes extensive information on the recently revised Statement on Standards for Continuing Professional Education Programs, which went into effect on September 1, 2016, and in the revised NASBA Fields of Study document, also in effect since September 1. The site has been designed to be easily compatible to desktop, tablet and mobile devices.

Using the site, CPAs can locate courses to fulfill their CPE requirements, verify their course provider is on the NASBA CPE Sponsor Registry or their state’s roster, and see CPE requirements organized by jurisdiction. They can also submit complaints against program sponsors via the new website, which will be matched up against the Registry’s standards and corrections requested from sponsors where appropriate. State Boards can also submit complaints via the site, search for sponsors and confirm Registry status.

CPE sponsors will find descriptions and videos highlighting the application process for being listed on the Registry for each of the approved delivery methods.

Terming the National Registry of CPE Sponsors an “advocate of CPE quality,” NASBA Director of Compliance Services and Chief Legal Officer Maria L. Caldwell said the site’s launch is “one of many ways in which NASBA maintains the highest of standards as we educate and engage members of the learning provider community.”
