DO PES COURSES QUALIFY FOR CPE IN THE STATE OF OREGON? YES!

The board requires that ALL self study or correspondence courses must be taken from sponsors approved as a NASBA QAS provider. Professional Education Services, LP (PES) is registered with NASBA QAS (#103592) on the National Registry of CPE sponsors and has issued credits in the state of Oregon without any problems.

LICENSE RENEWAL INFORMATION:

  • 80 hours / 2 years
  • Minimum of 20 hours / year (was previously 24: effective 10.01.2023 this is now 20 hours)
  • Maximum of 16 hrs in non-technical courses per renewal period
  • ETHICS: Oregon licensees are required to report at least 4 hours of ethics each biennial renewal period. Previously this was required to be a BOARD APPROVED / STATE SPECIFIC course. However, the new rules effective 10.01.2023 now allow general ethics to be used to fulfill this requirement. Therefore, PES course 4800: Ethics and Professional Conduct for Oregon CPAs can be used to fulfill this requirement as can any of our general ethics courses.
