Delaware CPE Requirements

Pacific Northwest Tax School programs meet Delaware CPE provider requirements. Final authority for CPE rests with the Delaware State Board of Accountancy. It is the responsibility of each CPA to verify whether CPE programs and sponsors meet Delaware Board requirements.

A summary of CPE requirements and contact information for the Board is provided below.
Sponsor Info: The Delaware Board of Accountancy does not pre-approve continuing education activities.

Renewal: June 30 of odd years (e.g., 2011, 2013).

Reporting: 6/30

CPE Requirements: 80 Hours Required. Each permit holder must have completed at least 80 hours of acceptable continuing professional education each biennial reporting period of each year ending with an odd number. The eighty hours of acceptable continuing professional education submitted must have been completed in the immediately preceding two-year period and must include a minimum of sixteen (16) credit hours in accounting and/or auditing and a minimum of sixteen (16) credit hours in taxation and four (4) credit hours in a Delaware specific ethics course approved by the Board as set forth in 11.8.

Acceptable CPE Providers: The overriding consideration in determining if a specific program qualifies as a continuing professional education program is whether it is a formal program of learning which contributes directly to the professional competence of the permit holder.

11.5.2 Formal Programs: Formal programs requiring class attendance will qualify only if:

11.5.2.1 An outline is prepared in advance and the plan sponsor agrees to preserve a copy for five years or the outline is provided to the participant or both.

11.5.2.2 The program is at least an hour (a fifty-minute period) in length.

11.5.2.3 The program is conducted by a qualified instructor or discussion leader.

11.5.2.4 A record of registration or attendance is maintained for five years or the participant is furnished with a statement of attendance, or both.

11.5.3 Programs deemed approved: Provided the criteria in 11.5.1 and 11.5.2 of these Rules and Regulations are met, the following are deemed to qualify for continuing professional education:

11.5.3.1 Programs approved by National Association of State Boards of Accountancy (NASBA);

11.5.3.2 Professional development programs of national, state and local accounting organizations;

11.5.3.3 Technical sessions at meeting of national, state and local accounting organizations and their chapters;

11.5.3.5 Programs of other organizations (accounting, industrial, professional, etc.);

11.5.3.6 Other organized educational programs on technical and other practice subjects including “in-house” training programs of public accounting firms.

Ethics Requirement: Yes. 4 Hours from Board approved providers. Pacific Northwest Tax School is NOT approved by the Board to offer ethics courses at this time.

Self study: Correspondence and Individual Study Programs: Formal correspondence or other individual study programs which provide evidence of satisfactory completion will qualify, with the amount of credit to be determined by the Board. The Board will not approve any program of learning that does not offer sufficient evidence that the work has actually been accomplished. The maximum credit toward meeting the continuing professional education requirement with formal correspondence or other individual study programs shall not exceed 30% of the total requirement.
