Continuing Professional Education (CPE) Requirement—Report Your CPE with Your 2017 Renewal
ACAT requires CPE reporting every three years. The current cycle ends 6/30/17 which means it’s time to confirm you’ve met the ACAT CPE requirements for your credentials over the last three years with your renewal.
Hours of CPE required per credential:
Accreditation in Accountancy (ABA): 120 hours of CPE during each three-year cycle.
Accredited Tax Preparer (ATP): 72 hours of CPE during each three-year cycle.
Accredited Tax Advisor (ATA): 90 hours of CPE during each three year cycle.
Accredited Retirement Advisor (ARA): 72 hours of CPE during each three year cycle.
Credential holders who have more than one credential need to have total hours of CPE for the credential with the highest requirement - not the combined number of hours.
