Yes. In order for self-study CPE to be acceptable for credit, the Board requires that the provider be a member of the National Association of State Boards of Accountancy (NASBA) Registry or QAS sponsor approval programs. As members of both programs, our courses are accepted for credit in Kansas.
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.
