How Courses are Approved for CPE Credit
The Nevada State Board of Accountancy rules stipulate that a course must increase the professional competency in order for a CPA to receive credit. The CPA must make this determination. The NVCPA is not the regulatory body that sets the rules. The Nevada State Board of Accountancy does not pre-approve any providers or courses for continuing professional education. The responsibility for determining if the course meets the requirements of Continuing Professional Education (Requirements, Programs which qualify, Controls and Reporting and Calculation of Hours of Credit) rests solely upon the provider and the licensee. Board Rules are available at http://www.nvaccountancy.com/education.fx
