Thank you for applying to become an approved provider of an ethics course satisfying the VBOA CPE requirements for the 2021 calendar year.
According to VBOA regulation 18VAC5-22-90, CPAs must annually take an ethics course of at least two hours for CPE. All approved courses must include the official VBOA Segment (obtained from firstname.lastname@example.org) before provider-crafted content.
Provider-crafted content must amount to at least 90 minutes for the 2021 calendar year. The VBOA Segment is approximately 12 minutes. As a reminder, 50 minutes of a course equates to 1 hour of CPE credit.
Providers creating multiple courses must have each course approved by the VBOA before sharing with CPAs.
The provider-crafted content and course must focus on ethics themes and topics.
Some examples of course topics may include, but are not limited to:
- Professional conduct and ethics
- Ethics in the real world
- Ethics in tax practice
- Behavioral ethics
- Governmental ethics
- Ethics of industry professionals/CPAs
