CPE Price War Erupts!

Increased competition has forced Practitioners Publishing Company to come close to the pricing structure offered by the AICPA.

AICPA will price its online CPE at an annual fee of $95 for what it calls 'all-you-can-eat' online CPE, while the PPC fee will be $99 for any and all courses CPAs and others want to take to satisfy their educational requirements. The PPC courses are called 'one-stop-shop.'

Note that this is for 'online' CPE only. PPC courses already are online at the www.ppcuniversity.com site. The AICPA's online courses will be available with the launch of the new portal, cpa2biz, later this summer at the new Web site, www.cpaweb.org. The new site still is in construction.

PPC officials say the move to lower pricing was not due to the pricing AICPA will implement for its course offerings, but had, instead, been planned for some time.
