While ethics training is required by many states, the true value of the CPA license is in understanding how critically important ethical behavior is to one another, our customers, and to the public. This course explores the basic tenets of ethical behavior and uses case studies to explore ethical dilemmas in various companies and organizations.
Virginia-Specific Ethics: This course has been created to help you meet the Virginia Board of Accountancy’s (VBOA) annual 2-hour (100-minute) CPE requirement for 2020. Section 18VAC5-22-90 of the VBOA’s regulations requires that all Virginia CPAs subject to continuing professional education must take an annual 2-hour ethics course acceptable to the VBOA. Each year, the VBOA provides an outline of topics to be included.
Note: The Maryland State Board of Public Accountancy does not require state-specific Ethics other than fulfilling the 4-hour requirement every 2 years. Therefore, by attending this 4-hour program, you will satisfy your Maryland Ethics requirement.
