North Dakota 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 North Dakota 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. North Dakota recognizes the same credit measurement.
Regulations state: "the overriding consideration in determining if a specific program qualifies... is if it is a formal program of learning which contributes directly to a licensee's professional competence, and meet the states specifications."
NASBA FIELD OF STUDY SYNOPSIS: North Dakota does not specific "fields of study"; therefore all the NASBA fields of study noted on PES certificates of completion can be reported for credit in ND.
