We'll take a detailed look at the renewal process of your license to help you decide what next steps to take. Let's start by setting the scene.
CPE and the License Renewal Process
CPE is a requirement that members of AICPA must meet to renew and maintain their licenses. CPE allows certified government accountants the opportunity to keep studying throughout their careers. Accounting regulations change constantly, just like many other professions. AICPA members are expected to keep up-to-date on all aspects of their profession. The organization provides continuing education to licensees.
- Interact regularly with new ideas, regulations, and rules
- Enhance their skills and add new capabilities to their toolbox
- Only offer the highest quality, premium-quality services
This helps the members of the organization to stand out from the rest. CPE is required for the renewal of your license. It will help you excel at what you love. It is a positive reflection on the AICPA and makes it possible for the public to view members as experts in their field.
