Are PES courses recognized for QAS CPE by NASBA?
QAS stands for Quality Assurance Service. The National Association of State Boards of Accountancy (NASBA) established the Quality Assurance Service (QAS) based on a request of the Florida Board of Accountancy's Task Force on Continuing Professional Education. QAS evaluates only organizations that offer self-study courses. Once an organization's courses have met the Standards, NASBA confers the QAS status on the organization.
The following states require that self-study CPE be taken from QAS sponsors: Florida, Minnesota, Mississippi, Oregon, South Carolina and Tennessee. Professional Education Services, LP is registered with NASBA as a QAS sponsor of continuing professional education.
