The Accountancy Board of Ohio, in cooperation with the National Association of State Boards of Accountancy (NASBA), is now offering a continuing professional education (CPE) audit service application for all Ohio CPAs. The CPE Audit Service is available for your use to track and store all your CPE records in one location, review your ongoing compliance with the CPE requirements of the Board as you complete CPE, and submit CPE records and documentation in response to an audit by the Board.
Note Regarding LinkedIn Learning, Coursera, or Other Pay-for-Certificate Programs:
Providers are now offering online “continuing education” courses with an option to purchase a completion certificate. However, these certificates show no credits completed or earned, and in some cases specifically state no credit earned. These courses cannot be applied toward meeting your CPE requirement, as they do not meet Board standards. You may view the Board’s CPE rules here and a list of appropriate documentation of CPE credit here.
This standard also applies to audited university courses, or other university-based courses/programs which confer no credit on a transcript (if no completion certificate is provided).
