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

The Board has adopted the the statement on standards for continuing professional education programs as outlined by NASBA. Pacific Northwest Tax School is an approved NASBA CPE sponsor and meets Rhode Island CPE sponsor requirements.

Renewal Period: 7/1

Reporting Period: 12/31 over a rolling 3 years

CPE Requirements: 120 hours is required over each rolling 3 year period.

  • Not less than twenty-four (24) hours of the one hundred twenty (120) hours required hereunder shall be devoted to accounting and auditing in the following subject areas: (A) accounting; (B) governmental accounting; (C) auditing; and (D) governmental auditing.

Self study: The Rhode Island Board of Acccountancy has adopted rules which allow credit for self-study programs which are QAS or interactive in nature only. Pacific Northwest Tax School's self-paced online programs are interactive and are qualifying CPE. With the exception of the Basic Tax Course, our correspondence courses are non-interactive and therefore do not meet Rhode Island requirements for acceptable self-study CPE.

The Board may, in its discretion, allow credit for interactive self-study programs. In determining the amount of credit to be awarded the Board will consider, but not be bound by, the recommendation of the sponsoring organization; provided, however, the maximum credit for such self-study programs shall not exceed eighty (80) CPE hours for that three year reporting period. The licensee shall be required to obtain and present to the Board evidence of satisfactory completion of the course from the program sponsor. Credit will be awarded in the calendar year in which the course is completed.
