Continuing Professional Education (CPE) Credits Policy

Shared Assessments issues continuing professional education credits for qualifying events and products. Shared Assessments is registered with the National Association of State Boards of Accountancy (NASBA) as a sponsor.

One CPE hour is earned for each fifty (50) minutes of active participation (excluding lunches and breaks) for qualifying educational activities and meetings. CPE calculations for online self-study training allocate CPEs using either word count or pilot test duration metrics based on the Statement on Standards for Continuing Professional Education (CPE) Programs.

Shared Assessments does not issue CPE credits for partial attendance or for non-Shared Assessments sponsored events. Attendance duration is verified via teleconference records and staff verification. Shared Assessments does recognize partial credits from other organizations’ qualifying events. 

State boards of accountancy have final authority on the acceptance of individual courses for CPE credit. Complaints regarding registered sponsors may be submitted to the National Registry of CPE Sponsors through its website: www.nasbaregistry.org.
