Maryland does not pre-approve continuing education programs or sponsors and they DO NOT have sponsorship agreements. They will accept courses from NASBA sponsors. Professional Education Services, LP (PES) is registered with NASBA (#103592) on the National Registry of CPE sponsors and has issued credits in the state of Maryland without any problems.
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. Maryland recognizes the same credit measurement.
Per the Board: the overriding consideration in determining whether a specific program qualifies is that it contributes directly to the professional competence of an individual after the individual has been licensed to practice certified public accounting. Qualifying subject fields of study reference the NASBA Registry of Acceptable CPE subjects.
NASBA FIELD OF STUDY SYNOPSIS: The Board references the NASBA Registry of Acceptable CPE, therefore all areas of study reflected on PES completion certificates should be acceptable in Maryland.
If you have any questions regarding your CPE requirements, please call PES at 1-800-990-2731 or your State board.
