Free CPE course temporarity discontinued

The IRS has recently changed the CPE course development requirements so that courses based on IRS publications are no longer accepted for credit.  Our free course "Charitable Contributions" was based on an IRS publication, so we have temporarily suspended it.  We are in the process of revising the content to meet the standards, and expect to have back online soon.

Immediately after passing the final exam with a 70% correct score, you will automatically receive a certificate of completion by email.

You can also later view and print your CPE certificate at any time by logging into the course system.

Lose your certificate? No problem--reprint certificate as many times as needed. Even if your course is expired (all courses expire 365 days from purchase, in accordance with AICPA/NASBA requirements), you can always retrieve your certificate.
