Alaska does not pre-approve continuing education programs or sponsors and they DO NOT have sponsorship agreements. They will accept courses from NASBA-QAS sponsors. PES is a registered sponsor with NASBA-QAS.
Credits granted for PES courses are based on the AICPA and NASBA (National Association of State Boards of Accountancy) statement of standards which grant 1 CPE credit for every 50-minutes of study time. Alaska recognizes the same credit measurement.
Alaska state regulation reads: "in order to be approved by the board, a subject must contribute directly to the professional competence of a person licensed to practice as a CPA."
NASBA FIELD OF STUDY SYNOPSIS: Alaska does not specify "fields of study"; therefore all the NASBA fields of study noted on PES certificates of completion should be able to be reported as CPE for license renewal.
If you have any questions regarding your CPE requirements, please call PES at 1-800-990-2731 or your State board.
