Multi-State – New Standards to Accommodate New Forms of Learning

SALT Report 3852 – CPAs will be able to receive continuing professional education (CPE) credit for instruction received in nano-learning and blended learning platforms under new standards issued Tuesday.

The AICPA and the National Association of State Boards of Accountancy (NASBA) changed the standards for CPE providers as well as NASBA’s Fields of Study document. The changes enable new learning methods that are popular with students:

-Nano-learning is delivery of information in short, 10-minute increments, often covering topics specific to a certain task. That could include, for example, videos that may help CPAs master certain specific, technical tasks.

-Blended learning combines multiple delivery methods, such as live instruction and on-demand self-study.
