Missouri does not pre-approve continuing education programs or sponsors and they DO NOT have sponsorship agreements. The board accepts CPE 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 Missouri without any problems.
