Wisconsin CPA CPE requirements are changing, beginning with 2021 renewal

As this year comes to a close, don't forget about the mandatory CPE requirements you need each year as a certified public accountant. 

According to the State of Wisconsin Department of Safety and Professional Services, certified public accountants must complete at least 80 CPE credits contributing to growth in professional knowledge and competence. At least 20 credits must be completed during each 12 month period and of the total credits, 40 must be from formal learning activities and 3 must be related to ethics. 

To reiterate, Wisconsin CPAs need to complete 80 total CPE credits by next December for 2021 renewal. And 20 of those credits must be completed in 2020

The end of the year is fast approaching. Are you going to risk losing certification?
