AICPA Launches Inexpensive Do-it-Yourself CPE

The AICPA is leading a new trend in CPE. This flat rate, all you can eat philosophy, provides over 1,000 hours of CPE for a flat rate of $95 per year, or $295 for non-AICPA members. Pay the fee, take all the courses you want, and work at home or at the office, at your own pace, at any time of the day or night, to complete the material and get your credit.

The one- and two-hour courses cover hundreds of areas of educational needs in the major categories of Accounting & Auditing, Consulting Services, Management, and Taxation. Courses are offered at Basic, Intermediate, and Advanced levels, and will be constantly updated to provide the most current information available.

Once you have earned the credit for a course, you are entitled to return to the course and use the material as a reference whenever you want.
