Connecticut CPE Requirements:

Licensees must renew their licenses annually by December 31. As a condition precedent to renewal of such license, each applicant must complete 40 hours of CPE during the period from July I through June 30, immediately preceding each such December 31.

Special Requirements/Limitations:

8 hours in the subject area of attest or compilation services is required for any individual licensee who performs or is responsible for supervising attest or compilation services or who signs or authorizes another person to sign reports on financial statements on behalf of the firm.

Connecticut licensed CPAs must take 4 hours of ethics training every three years. The four-hour ethics requirement can be met by taking our Connecticut Ethics course. Follow the ethics link on our homepage to access this course.

There are no restrictions on the number of interactive self-study CPE credits claimed in the renewal period.

Do AEG courses qualify for credit in Connecticut?

Yes. Connecticut does not pre-approve continuing education programs or sponsors and they do not have sponsorship agreements. They will accept courses from members of the National Association of State Boards of Accountancy (NASBA) Registry and QAS sponsor approval programs. As members of both programs, our courses are accepted for credit in Connecticut.

How are our recommended CPE hours determined?

As a member of the NASBA Registry and QAS sponsor approval programs, we are required to conform to the measurement standards contained in the Statement on Standards of Continuing Professional Education (CPE) Programs developed jointly by NASBA and the AICPA. Under these Standards our credits are based upon 1 CPE credit for every 50-minutes of study time, as determined by the average test results of CPAs pre-testing the material prior to publication.
