Web Technology Opens Doors to Live CPE From Home or Office
Savvy CPAs across the country are discovering they now have a convenient option for earning their live continuing education credits.

And instead of trekking across town to attend a traditional program, they’re flocking to “seminars” that are offered live on the Web.
“It’s no surprise our webcasts are becoming so popular with CPAs,” said Valerie Wendt, Product Manager for Bisk Education’s CPEasy. “With a live webcast, you just log in and start learning — all without leaving your desk.”
Compare that to a traditional seminar, where professionals could easily spend an entire morning to earn a few CPE credits. Instead of taking time away from their billable hours to commute back and forth from a seminar, CPAs can continue focusing on serving their clients. Plus, with the soaring price of travel, these online seminars can help save money, too. It all adds up to big benefits for time-strapped CPAs.
The availability of live webcasts is a particularly welcome development for accountants in the 18 states, including Michigan, Iowa, Illinois and Pennsylvania, which have a requirement for a specific number of live CPE credit hours CPAs must earn.
But it’s more than just convenience that CPAs find appealing. Live webcasts allow accountants to get up to speed on the latest developments with some of the leading experts in the industry. Bisk CPEasy’s webcasts are presented by such noted instructors as E. Lynn Nichols (CPA), Thomas A. Ratcliffe (PhD, CPA), J. Russell Madray (CPA, CIA, CMA, CFM), Gregory J. Lane (CPA, CFP) and Betty A. Pendergrass. CPA, CGFM.
“It’s really the best of both worlds,” said Wendt. “Not only do CPAs get the convenience of learning from their home or office, they also get to have their questions answered by some of the most highly respected professionals in the industry.”
