Virginia does not require specific sponsorship approval (except for the Ethics course). Virginia 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 Virginia 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. PES courses are deemed "interactive" as they provide the "ongoing interactive feedback" per the board rules and the AICPA / NASBA statement of standards. Virginia recognizes the same credit measurement.
Regulations state: "course content pertinent to the profession"
NASBA FIELD OF STUDY SYNOPSIS: VA does not specific fields of study; therefore the NASBA fields of study noted on PES certificates can be reported to the Board.
