New CPE requirements in effect

Written on Jan 29, 2015

Ohio is leading the charge for change in professional development models. The Accountancy Board of Ohio (ABO) recently adopted CPE rule changes that will prepare the profession for continuing education of the future.

In the January/February issue of CPA Voice, OSCPA Executive Vice President Laura Hay, CPA, CAE, OCPA’s, explores how new CPE rules in our state will help position the accounting profession for changing education models.

The AICPA and the National Association of State Boards of Accountancy (NASBA) have spent significant time studying how the profession can best stay on the forefront to ensure quality services and anticipate changes in the marketplace. They are focusing on the evolution of adult learning; specifically, how CPAs will reach learning objectives and how state boards of accountancy can measure achievement.

Ohio has representatives on both AICPA and NASBA exploring these topics.

One of the changes was approval of microlearning for credit in segments as short as 10 minutes. OSCPA is launching a variety of products in the shorter format, called Quick Bytes. Learn more about how you can use this new product to learn about topics that interest you.
