Annual requirements: In each January 1 - December 31 CPE reporting year (except during the licensee's initial triennial registration period) the licensee may either:

  • Complete a minimum of 40 contact hours of acceptable formal continuing education in any of the recognized subject areas, or
  • Complete a minimum of 24 contact hours of acceptable formal continuing education concentrated in one subject area.

What are the approved continuing education subject areas?

The six approved subject areas are specified in the State Education Law §7409(4). They are:

  • Accounting
  • Auditing
  • Attestation
  • Taxation
  • Advisory Services
  • Specialized knowledge and applications related to specialized industries

In order to be eligible for CPE credit, regardless of the subject area, a course must contribute to the development or maintenance of professional knowledge. Credit will not be given for courses that focus on the marketing of professional services or improving the profitability of an accounting firm or practice.

How can I find an approved CPE provider?

If you take a live course in New York State or any self-study course, regardless of where you are located, you must take it from a New York State-registered CPE provider.

If you are taking a live course outside of New York State, you may take it from a New York State-registered CPE provider or a CPE provider who has registered with the National Association of State Boards of Accountancy (NASBA).

Pacific Northwest Tax School is registered with NASBA and is licensed as a sponsor of CPE for New York CPAs by the New York State Board for Public Accountancy. Our classroom, webinar, and self-study programs qualify New York CPAs for CPE.
