* Specific state requirements for CPAs:

Alabama CPAs and Montana CPAs should report 50% of the CPE credit shown on their FunCPE certificate.

  • Alabama defines "interactive CPE" as requiring interaction with the instructor. FunCPE courses do not meet that definition, as we use the AICPA definition of "interactive." Our courses meet the AL "non-interactive" course requirements, but the CPE credit must be reported at the 50% rate.

Arizona CPAs must take a minimum of 16 hours of classroom or live/interactive webinar CPE.  While all FunCPE courses are interactive per the AICPA definition, none of our courses are interactive webinars.

California CPAs must take 8 hours of fraud CPE if work on an audit, review, compilation or attestation service during any two year reporting period.
 
California requires that course final exams contain 100% multiple choice questions.  Currently the following FunCPE courses meet this requirement:
Colorado requires that course final exams contain 100% multiple choice questions.  Currently the following FunCPE courses meet this requirement:

Nebraska CPAs may obtain pre-approval of courses from the Nebraska Board of Accountancy. Pre-approval is recommended but not required.

New Hampshire requires that self study examinations contain in-depth review of the correct answers to program exam questions. All FunCPE courses include a review exam which has in-depth explanation for both correct and incorrect answers.

New York CPAs cannot take personal development courses or courses concerning marketing a CPA practice, thus the following are not acceptable courses for NY CPAs:

  • Managing Alliances (Never Eat Alone)

Ohio CPAs no longer need a "registered provider number" because the Accountancy Board of Ohio discontinued sponsor registration requirements in 2008. Read about the Ohio sponsor changes for more information.

Texas CPAs can reference the required State Board of Public Accountancy language required for CPE Sponsors and see how many Texas cities are represented by FunCPE students. FunCPE has been a registered Texas CPA CPE sponsor since 2001--you can view a copy of the Texas State Board letter  as well as our most recent successful CPE review by the Board.  We also have a list of Texas CPA Ethics courses available online.

*** Florida exceptions to NASBA requirement

Self-study courses taken in the Behavioral category are accepted from CPE providers who are not registered with NASBA. Accordingly, the following courses can be taken from FunCPE for CPE credit for Florida CPAs:

  • Managing Alliances (Never Eat Alone)
  • Good to Great
  • Zappos:  Delivering Happiness
