5 Continuing Professional Education Courses You Should Try

We think one of the best parts of getting your CPA re-certification is that there are no specific requirements.

Of course you’ll need to check to see if your state has any specific requirements of their own, but for the most part you can choose which courses you get to take in order to earn those credit hours. You can choose the areas you’re least comfortable in, or the topics you want to know more about, making the whole experience far more fruitful.

That being said, there are a lot of amazing options out there to help you earn credit hours for the CPA exam. It can be a little daunting when you visit a site like ours and see the many courses available.

We’ve put together a list of some of our most popular CPA courses to help you narrow down your choices. These are CPA credits that are most often chosen or that we’ve gotten great feedback on.

  1. CPA Ethics

Our ethics courses are among the most popular we offer, and the best part is they’re highly individualized! Each of our ethics courses specialized for each state so you can be sure you’re learning all the applicable things for where you work from. We’ve also got an overview ethics course for all CPAs to help you get through the basics.

The course offers real world examples to best help you apply the information to your work.
