How many CPE credits do I get?

QuickBooks Certification: You are eligible to receive 16 CPE credits when you successfully complete the QuickBooks ProAdvisor Certification courses for the first time. If you have earned certification in an earlier version, and take the latest Certification courses, you may be eligible for two-four CPE credits, depending upon your state requirement. Note: The update exam provides the same amount of CPE credits.

QuickBooks Point of Sale (POS) Certification: You do not receive CPE credits for QuickBooks POS Certification.

NOTE: Some states do not allow CPE credits when taking the QuickBooks ProAdvisor Certification courses. State boards of accountancy have final authority on the acceptance of individual courses for CPE credit. It i sthe responsibility of the individual earning the CPE credits to investigate what his/her own state board of accountancy recognizes with respect to any CPE course.
