Rhode Island CPE Requirements
CPAs and auditors in Rhode Island must complete 120 credit hours of approved continuing professional education every three-year renewal period. This mandate, based on recommendations by the National Association of State Boards of Accountancy (nasba-group-internet-based) and the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA), is designed to ensure all CPAs continue to serve their clients in a manner that reflects the most recent changes to state and federal laws.
Rhode Island CPE rules state that credit can be earned through qualifying live and self-study training programs in the following areas:
- Accounting and auditing
- Technical business subjects, including consulting, management and tax law

- Sales and Use Tax in Rhode Island
- IRS Form 1099 Reporting: What You Need to Know in Rhode Island

A minimum of 6.0 credit hours each reporting period must be in a subject related to ethics. At the same time, no more than 24 hours can be devoted to personal development and marketing.
