Comment is being sought on proposed revisions to the Statement on Standards for Continuing Professional Education programs. The National Association of State Boards of Accountancy and the American Institute of CPAs are seeking the input on an exposure draft through March 31.
Proposed changes would clarify how to award CPE credit when multiple presenters are actively involved in running one CPE program session. They would also provide clarity on how to communicate and document required attendance and monitoring mechanisms.
The Standards provide a framework for the development, presentation, measurement and reporting of CPE programs. Many proposed revisions clarify Standards, last revised in 2019.
