GASB Issues First CPE Course

The Government Accounting Standards Board has issued its first CPE course, "The Financial Reporting Model - A Review of GASB Statement No. 34, Basic Financial Statements - and Management's Discussion and Analysis - for State and Local Governments."

The course covers Statement 34 as amended by Statement 35 (colleges and universities) and Statement 37 (Statement 34 omnibus). It also incorporates guidance from the Statement 34 Implementation Guide.

The course is targeted at those who have a basic understanding of the current financial reporting model for governments and is designed to be a comprehensive but easy-to-follow walk-through of the new model’s reporting requirements.

The course is available as a self-study book that qualifies for nine Quality Assurance Services hours or four NASBA registry credits. The course is also available in an instructor-led format. Contact Practitioners Publishing Company at 800-323-8724 and select option 6 to order the self-study book, or ask for Winford Paschall or Lisa Stence for information about instructor-led training.
