Self-study CPE regulations have changed
FERFPros powered by SmartPros meets all new NASBA guidelines

Due to changes to NASBA standards governing self-study CPE credit, reading general business literature and taking the corresponding exams no longer qualify for CPE credit. To qualify, literature must be “supplements to the instructional materials” of an authorized CPE program. Please see the revised January 2012 NASBA Statement on Standards for CPE Programs, S8-07 for details.
