Sponsors must register with the board as a "Texas board contracted CPE provider". PES is listed as a Board contracted sponsor with the Texas Board of Accountancy (PES ID: #005928). Professional Education Services, LP (PES) is also registered with NASBA (#103592) on the National Registry of CPE sponsors and has issued credits in the state of Texas 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. Texas recognizes the same credit measurement.
Courses the Board regards as increasing the licensee’s professional competence include:
Technical Courses such as but not limited to: accounting, attest, tax, management advisory services, economics, finance, information technology, regulatory ethics and other technical areas of benefit to a licensee and a licensee's employer(s);
Non Technical Areas of Study such as but not limited to: communications, computer software and applications, behavioral ethics, behavioral science, business management and organization, and advanced courses in foreign languages, which relate and benefit a licensee and / or their employer.
NASBA FIELD OF STUDY SYNOPSIS: The NASBA fields of study can be equated to the fields specifically listed by the TX Board of accountancy and therefore courses listed on PES certificates of completion should be able to be reported to the TX Board.
