Maine CPE Requirements

Pacific Northwest Tax School programs meet Maine CPE requirements. Final authority for CPE rests with the Maine Board of Accountancy. It is the responsibility of each CPA to verify whether CPE programs and sponsors meet Maine Board requirements. A summary of CPE requirements and website link for the Board is provided below.

Summary of Maine CPE Requirements

Sponsor Information: A specific program will qualify as acceptable CPE if it is a formal program of learning, which contributes directly, at a professional level, to the professional competence of a licensee in public practice. It will be left to the individual licensee to determine the course of study to be pursued.

Reporting: The annual period for measurement of CPE shall be the twelve month period beginning on October 1 and ending on September 30 of the following calendar year.

CPE Requirements: The Board requires all licensees to obtain 40 hours of CPE annually and 120 hours of CPE every three years, due at time of renewal.

Ethics Requirement: All licensees must obtain at least 4 hours of CPE in professional ethics every three years. Acceptable CPE in ethics may include a program of study of the accountancy laws and rules of the State of Maine and the Code of Conduct, or equivalent standards of the Securities Exchange Commission, the AICPA, or similar regulatory agency or professional organization.

Self Study: Formal correspondence or other individual study programs. Such programs must require registration and provide evidence of satisfactory completion; provided, however, that credit for such programs may not exceed 50% of the hours required by these rules.
