Self-study CPE: No more limits

Equal Maryland's State Board of Public Accountancy has spoken, and here's its verdict:

CPE equals CPE.

Under new State Board regulations, self-study program credits are now calculated in the same way as classroom credits, thus removing the limitations formerly imposed on self-study. This means self-study credits are now considered equal and subject to the 80-hour CPE carryover allowance.

There are two effective dates to keep in mind: 

  • May 18, 2009 for previously named "interactive" self-study, and 
  • Oct. 10, 2009 for previously named "regular self-study."

This new regulation is not retroactive.
