CPE for CPAs licensed in Montana

Regulations require CPAs in MT to report self study CPE at 50% of completion time.

FunCPE courses provide CPE credit at the 100% rate, therefore you should report only one-half the CPE hours shown on your certificate.


Montana CPAs can take CPE courses from sponsors outside of Montana for CPE credit.

If a CPE provider is registered as a NASBA provider, self-study CPE credit is based on a 50-minute hour. If a CPE provider is not registered with NASBA, the CPE credit for self-study courses is based on a 100-minute hour. FunCPE is not a registered NASBA provider.

Note that our courses are pretested in accordance with the MT CPE regulations and all courses are classified as interactive.

Requirements for Continuing Education Program Acceptance



(1) Formal self-study programs shall be pretested by the developer to
determine average completion time.

(a) Interactive self-study programs shall receive continuing education credit equal to the average completion time, if the sponsor is recognized and approved by NASBA's CPE quality assurance service (referred to as a NASBA QAS sponsor) or NASBA's national registry of CPE sponsors (referred to as a NASBA registry sponsor).

An interactive self-study program is designed to use interactive learning methodologies that simulate a classroom learning process that provides significant ongoing, interactive feedback to the participant regarding the participant's learning progress.

(b) All other interactive and noninteractive self-study programs receive
continuing education credit equal to one-half of the average completion time.

(2) Individuals claiming credit for such correspondence or formal individual
study courses are required to obtain evidence of satisfactory completion of the
course from the program sponsor.

Credit is allowed in the period in which the course is completed, except as allowed in ARM 24.201.2106.
