Utah CPE Requirements

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

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

Sponsor Information: CPE program sponsors are responsible for compliance with all applicable standards and other CPE requirements. Sponsored learning activities must be based on relevant learning objectives and outcomes that clearly articulate the knowledge, skills, and abilities that can be achieved by participants in the learning activities. Learning activities, meaning an educational endeavor that improves or maintains professional competence, provided by CPE program sponsors for the benefit of CPAs, should specify the level, content, and learning objectives so that potential participants can determine if the learning activities are appropriate to their professional competence development needs.

Pacific Northwest Tax School's educational programs meet Utah Board of Accountancy sponsor requirements.

Renewal: 9/30 every even year

Reporting: 12/31 biennially

CPE Requirements: All CPAs must participate in CPE learning activities that maintain and/or improve their professional competence. This CPE must include a minimum of 80 hours of CPE in each two-year period ending on December 31 of each odd numbered year. CPAs should comply with all applicable CPE requirements and should claim CPE credit only for CPE programs when the CPE program sponsors have complied with the Standards for CPE Program Presentation

Ethics Requirement: None.

Self Study: Self-study programs must employ learning methodologies that clearly define learning objectives, guide the participant through the learning process, and provide evidence of a participant’s satisfactory completion of the program.

  • To guide participants through a learning process, CPE program sponsors of self-study programs must elicit participant responses to test for understanding of the material, offer evaluative feedback to incorrect responses, and provide reinforcement feedback to correct responses. To provide evidence of satisfactory completion of the course, CPE program sponsors of self-study programs must require participants to successfully complete a final examination with a minimum-passing grade of at least 70 percent before issuing CPE credit for the course.
    (A) Evaluative feedback, as used in this subsection, means: specific response to incorrect answers to questions in self-study programs. Unique feedback must be provided for each incorrect response, as each one is likely to be wrong for differing reasons.
    (B) Reinforcement feedback, as used in this subsection, means: specific responses to correct answers to questions in self-study programs. Such feedback restates why the answer selected was correct.
  • Examinations may contain questions of varying format (for example, multiplechoice, essay and simulations.) If objective type questions are used, at least five questions per CPE credit must be included on the final examination. For example, the final examination for a five-credit course must include at least 25 questions.
  • Self-study programs must be based on materials specifically developed for instructional use. Self-study programs requiring only the reading of general professional literature, IRS publications, or reference manuals followed by a test will not be acceptable. However, the use of the publications and reference materials in self-study programs as supplements to the instructional materials could qualify if the self-study program complies with each of the CPE standards.

All Pacific Northwest Tax School self-paced online programs meet Utah Board of Accountancy requirements for self-study. In addtion, our Correspondence Basic Tax Course also meets Board requirements for self-study.
