This course is approved by the National Association of State Boards of AccountancyThe significance of NASBA certification

Many professionals hold formal certifications which legitimize their competence in their field to the public. Professionals who maintain certified credentials assure their clients of their skill and dedication to quality in various accounting career paths. There is no higher standard than NASBA certification for those working in accounting.

What is The National Registry of CPE Sponsors

The National Registry of CPE Sponsors was created to help recognize CPE program sponsors who commit to meeting the highest CPE program standards. In addition, The Georgia State Board of Accountancy requires active Certified Public Accountants (CPAs) to take 80 hours of continuing professional education (CPE) every two years. As part of the elite registry, the University of Georgia’s Carl Vinson Institute of Government can meet the continuing professional education for CPAs in Georgia.

Requirements for a course to earn certification

The NASBA certification requires identifying learning objectives, activities to determine the student has achieved the learning objectives, content development by subject matter experts, and evaluative feedback for activities. To earn CPE, students must successfully complete all activities, including the final exam.

The University of Georgia Carl Vinson Institute of Government is registered with the National Association of State Boards of Accountancy (NASBA) as a sponsor of continuing professional education under National Registry Sponsor Number 140808. State boards of accountancy have final authority on accepting individual courses for CPE credit. Complaints regarding registered sponsors may be submitted to the National Registry of CPE Sponsors through its website.
