Want free CPE? Pilot a new self-study course

CPE Link needs volunteers to pilot test its new self-study materials. Per NASBA requirements, in order to determine the recommended CPE hours for a new self-study course, it must be tested to measure the average completion time.

To qualify as a pilot tester, you must be a licensed CPA. When you volunteer to pilot test a course, you get instant access to the materials at no cost to you. In order to earn CPE credit, you must pass the final exam and submit the information that NASBA requires including your resume. You will be asked to attest to your level of knowledge or expertise in the subject matter and the number of hours it takes you to complete the course.

Because we need to wait until everyone has completed the final exam, we cannot guarantee the timing of the posting of your CPE credit. When the pilot process is complete, the number of CPE credit hours will be determined. You will be notified when the pilot process is complete and you will receive your certificate of completion at that time.
