Nebraska CPE Requirements

Note: JavaScript is REQUIRED to log in and use this site.

The Nebraska Board of Accountancy recommends CPAs obtain CPE from a Board-approved sponsor. CPE sponsors who are approved by the National Association of State Boards of Accountancy (NASBA) are automatically approved by the Board. Pacific Northwest Tax Service is an approved NASBA sponsor, the school is automatically approved by the Nebraska Board of Accountancy.

Final authority for CPE rests with the Nebraska Board of Accountancy. It is the responsibility of each CPA to verify whether CPE programs and sponsors meet Nebraska Board requirements. A summary of CPE requirements and a link to the Nebraksa Board of Accountancy website is provided below.

Sponsorship Requirements

Reporting Period: CPE must be earned by December 31 and reported to the Board by January 31st.

CPE Requirements: For Active permit holders the CPE requirement is 80 hours every 2 years. The hours are reported each year by January 31st. You must have 80 hours of CPE including 4 hrs of ethics in order to renew your Active Permit. There is no CPE requirement for Inactive Registrants, or to qualify for your Initial Active Permit to Practice.

The purpose of continuing professional education is to assist the practitioner in maintaining professional knowledge and competence. Programs selected should contribute directly to his or her professional competency to practice public accountancy. Programs can be approved, partially approved or not approved for CPE credit based upon the relevance to the practice of public accountancy as determined by the Board.

Ethics: A permit holder must complete 4 hours of ethics in every reporting period for renewal or reinstatement. The Board’s intent is to remain flexible and allow the requirement to cover broad and general course content for ethics. You are not required to complete the 4-hour requirement in one course setting. You can submit one-hour increments for portions of courses that cover ethics.

Self Study: Permit holders claiming credit for such courses will be required to furnish evidence of satisfactory completion of the course. Credit will be allowed in the renewal period in which the certificate of completion is dated. Not more than 50% of required hours during a licensing or reinstatement period shall be represented by such courses or programs. A certificate of completion designating the number of hours must be attached before any credit will be allowed.
