AICPA Launches Flat-Rate Internet CPE


The Institute introduced Web-based CPE in July, making it easier to conduct research and complete required professional education from any location at any time.

Available to members for an annual fee of $95 and to nonmembers for $295, AICPA Infobytes offers more than 1,100 hours of online coursework in one- and two-hour segments that have been converted from the Institute’s library of printed materials. Each course can be viewed an unlimited number of times in contrast to some providers’ online CPE courses, which are accessible for one session only.

AICPA Infobytes presents continuing education as a lifelong learning experience in which the amount of knowledge attained, not the length of time devoted to study, is the truest measure of learning.

Subjects include accounting and auditing, taxation, consulting and management. By continually updating the contents of each course, the Institute ensures all study material is current.

AICPA Infobytes is available on the Web at https://infobytes.aicpaservices.org . Visitors to the site should note this Internet address requires an “s” before the colon (https).
