Continuing Professional Education (CPE)

Ongoing education is a large part of maintaining the CPA credential. In Minnesota, active CPAs must earn continuing professional education (CPE) to use the credential without restriction. Inactive CPAs are not required to earn CPE, but many return to the classroom for education on issues that affect them as professionals.

Continuing professional education requirements are set and enforced by the Minnesota Board of Accountancy, outlined in Chapter 1105 of Minnesota Administrative Rules. CPAs must earn 120 hours of CPE every three years, including eight hours of ethics, with a minimum of 20 CPE hours annually.

A CPE year runs from July 1 to June 30 in Minnesota.

CPAs must be aware of the types of CPE accepted by the Minnesota Board of Accountancy. CPE limitations, including caps on self-study or courses offered by non-registered providers, exist to protect the credibility of the education required for the credential.

Famous quotes containing the words education, continuing and/or professional:

    One of the greatest faults of the women of the present time is a silly fear of things, and one object of the education of girls should be to give them knowledge of what things are really dangerous.
    Ellen Henrietta Swallow Richards (1842–1911)

    A child-like man is not a man whose development has been arrested; on the contrary, he is a man who has given himself a chance of continuing to develop long after most adults have muffled themselves in the cocoon of middle-aged habit and convention.
    Aldous Huxley (1894–1963)

    Virtue and vice suppose the freedom to choose between good and evil; but what can be the morals of a woman who is not even in possession of herself, who has nothing of her own, and who all her life has been trained to extricate herself from the arbitrary by ruse, from constraint by using her charms?... As long as she is subject to man’s yoke or to prejudice, as long as she receives no professional education, as long as she is deprived of her civil rights, there can be no moral law for her!
    Flora Tristan (1803–1844)
