AICPA Begins New CPE Program

The AICPA has developed a new CPE program designed to award ‘fellow’ status to practitioners who gain 64 credits over a three-year time period, including 16 hours of personal and leadership development courses.

The announcement was made during a meeting in Dallas of CPE instructors.

The program is expected to begin in September, and was created so that the Institute could increase sales in its training products area. Known as the CPE Academies, the program will be part of a new $95 CPE buying opportunity in which members can take all the CPE they want for that price.

Fields of study include treasury management, corporate tax management, fraud examinations, exempt organizations, tax advisors for small business and investment advisory services.
