The licensee may present at a professional seminar, educational conference or classroom setting, if up-to-date knowledge of the subject matter is demonstrated and appropriate teaching materials are used. The topic must be relevant to the development of being a CPA.
Credits for presentation and preparation time can be earned, with preparation limited to twice the total presentation time. No additional credit will be given for repeat presentations of the same material.
The definition of presentations made in a classroom setting includes teaching courses at an accredited college or university. College and university instructors, at accredited institutions, may count first time preparation and presentation of a course for CPE. CPE is only permitted the first time the course is prepared and offered by the instructor. A copy of the syllabus and a statement certifying it was the licensee’s first time preparing and teaching the section is required. Documentation needs to include a letter from the Department Head or Chair confirming that information.
Please note: During each 3-year period, a maximum of 30 hours for preparing and making presentations or teaching courses is allowable.
