With more than 30 years’ experience providing accounting CPE in West Virginia and beyond, we are a nationwide specialist in professional distance learning.
What Are West Virginia’s CPE Requirements?
CPE requirements in West Virginia are overseen by the state’s Board of Accountancy, which requires that 120 credit hours be completed every rolling three-year period. While it is recommended that CPAs complete 40 credits each calendar year, only 20 are required so long as the deficit is made up over the course of the renewal period. Every three years, 4.0 hours of approved ethics training must be completed.
What Types of Training Meet West Virginia’s CPE Requirements?
While the West Virginia Board of Accountancy does not approve CPE courses, it is specific about the types of programs that qualify for credit. Qualifying West Virginia CPE courses must:
- Contribute to professional competence
- Be current and up-to-date with state and federal laws
- Have clearly stated educational or experiential prerequisites
- Be developed by qualified individuals using recognized teaching methods
- Be reviewed by someone other than the instructor
- Meet all other standards in the National Association of State Boards of Accountancy (nasba-group-internet-based) and American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA)’s jointly issued Statement on Standards for Continuing Professional Education (CPE) Programs
Since CPE is self-reported, CPAs may be subject to random audits on an annual or two-year basis.
