The board requires that all self-study 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 South Carolina 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. South Carolina recognizes the same credit measurement.
The original 23 acceptable areas of study as listed by NASBA (now that NASBA has changed to 20 areas, those areas are acceptable).
NASBA FIELD OF STUDY SYNOPSIS: All of the NASBA fields of study are acceptable for SC CPE, therefore all fields of study on PES certificates can be reported to the SC Board.
If you have any questions regarding your CPE requirements, please call PES at 1-800-990-2731 or your State board.
