The NVCPA reserves the right to cancel a course for insufficient registrations. If your class is cancelled, we will notify you as quickly as possible.

Distribution of Materials

Materials are not distributed prior to the course and will be handed out on site. Materials are provided for use and designed specifically for the seminar presentation. They are the copyrighted property of the seminar producer and are available only for program attendees. The materials or portions thereof are not available for sale. In the event of a late registration, after materials are ordered, the late registrant will receive their materials within 3 days of the course date.

CPE Certificates

CPE certificates are distributed at the completion of each course. If it is necessary to leave a course early, notify the Society as well as the instructor and a new CPE certificate will be issued. It is permissible to claim less than the total number of credit hours offered by a course. The Society reserves the right to not issue CPE if notified by instructor that participant was not in the class.

How Courses are Approved for CPE

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, reporting, and calculation of hour of credit) rests solely upon the provider and the licensee. Board rules are available at:

www.nvaccountancy.com/education.fx

The NVCPA secures its CPE courses from highly rated national CPE vendors. While these courses are of the highest quality, the NVCPA highly encourages attendees to determine with their individual State Board of Accountancy if the course will qualify for CPE in their respective state.

Evaluations

Evaluation forms are provided at the conclusion of each course and conference. Your comments help the NVCPA provide quality seminars and speakers in a comfortable environment.
