Do AEG courses qualify for credit in South Dakota?

Yes. Our courses comply with all applicable South Dakota CPE requirements, which are based on CPE standards published in the Statement on Standards of Continuing Professional Education (CPE) Programs developed jointly by NASBA and the AICPA.

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.
