CPE Requirements: 120 hours is required for each three-year enrollment period. Additional rules which apply to new licensees are as follows:

  • If the individual's initial license to practice was issued during the current calendar year, the WV CPA is exempt from securing CPE hours. However, the CPA must complete and return the CPE reporting form before the January 31 deadline indicating the exempt status.
  • The newly licensed WV CPA must then secure and report a minimum of 40 hours the first full calendar year of licensure and a minimum of 20 hours the next calendar year.
  • In the third full calendar year of licensure, the WV CPA must have completed a 120-hour 3-year requirement.

Ethics CPE: 4 hours of Ethics must make up part of the 120 hour 3-year CPE requirement.

Additional CPE Requirements: CPE credits must be secured within the calendar year unless an Extension has been granted. (CPE credits secured in January to make up for a deficiency the previous year must be accompanied by an Extension Request to enable you to report these hours).

Provisions for West Virginia CPAs Licensed in another state: A West Virginia CPA who has located to another State and is licensed in the new state of residence must secure and report CPE hours to the Board of Accountancy. The West Virginia Board of Accountancy, will, however, accept the CPE hour requirements of the State to which the CPA has moved. If the new state of residence does not require CPE, then the CPA must report CPE to the West Virginia Board and meet West Virginia's requirements in order to maintain a license to practice.

A West Virginia CPA who has located to another State, has continued to maintain a license to practice in West Virginia and is not licensed in his new state of residence must meet the CPE requirements of West Virginia to maintain a license.
