The Importance of CPE Credits

CPE credits are a great way of ensuring that accounting and finance professionals are keeping themselves up to date with their professional skills. For both technical and social skills, the need for professional development is clear. As an industry, we all benefit if our professional advisors in finance and accounting are up to date with the most current industry practices.

It can be so easy to earn a CPA or CFA® designation and think that the need to develop simply stops there. That is not the case, however, and we are happy to have designed many courses that will help CPA and other accounting professionals stay current and sharpen their skills.
