CPA Class

Some CPA continuing education courses have been designed to cover all aspects of the accounting field. If you are a CPA, you will have no problem finding a class that fulfills your CPE requirements while remaining interesting and useful, as well. Many courses are created by leading accountants and educators, so they reflect practical issues that you encounter on a regular basis. These classes should get you up-to-date on recent changes or changes that are likely to occur in the near future, so you will know exactly how you and your clients will be affected.

Whether you need a CPA class just to finish off those final four CPE hours or if you need to knock out all 40 in a short period of time, there are classes for you. Most educational companies and schools have catalogs with individual courses that cover a variety of time requirements, so you only have to pay for what you need. For instance, you can find shorter classes for under $50. However, if you do not want to be tied down to a single class or even a single subject, you can order multi-course CDs that have hundreds of hours worth of classes on them. The courses you don't take can serve as effective reference materials on a number of issues pertinent to the industry.

CPA Classes from Home

It can be difficult to find the time or the drive to get to a continuing education CPA class. Fortunately, there are courses available that can be taken on your computer for up to a year after you order them. You can download course materials, receive printed texts or CD-Rom versions. When you have finished the class, you can actually take your test online, so there will be no waiting period to see how you did or to receive your certificate.

You do not need extensive computer knowledge to take most of these classes. The programs are often self-explanatory and easy to use. However, if you do have questions, you can usually contact the school or educational company by phone or email, and they will be able to help you.
