    2020 CPE Report Reminders

    The 2020 CPE Reporting reminder correspondence was distributed to all Active licensees on December 1, 2020 and again on January 7, 2021.  It was brought to our attention that a number of Active licensees did not receive the reminder, which staff then determined an error in the system with the distribution of the correspondence.  The issue has been reported to the software developer and they are working diligently to resolve the error. New email reminders will be sent out once the issue has been resolved.

    You may access the online CPE Reporting Form at:   https://www.boa.wv.gov/renewals/cpe/index.asp . The form is now open year-round in order to accommodate those licensees who would like to utilize the online reporting form as a CPE tracker tool. The online form allows you to log your CPE courses as you obtain them throughout the calendar year. Please remember to use the “Save for Later” feature and not the “Submit” feature, until you have a fully completed report and are ready for your CPE hours to be processed by Board staff.  Processing of all CPE reports begins in early January and will continue through April 15th.  

    If you have questions concerning this issue, please contact our CPE Coordinator at Stefani.D.Young@wv.gov .

  • NASBA, AICPA and Prometric to Begin Year-Round Testing for U.S. CPA Exam on July 1, 2020

    7/2/2020
    NASBA, AICPA and Prometric to Begin Year-Round Testing for U.S. CPA Exam on July 1, 2020   NASHVILLE, NEW YORK, BALTIMORE - (July 1, 2020) The National Association of State Boards of Accountancy (NASBA), American Institute of CPAs (AICPA) and Prometric are launching year-round testing of the Uniform CPA Examination (Exam) beginning today. The new continuous testing model provides greater candidate flexibility and convenience, with more than 75 additional testing dates available throughout the year. The new model replaces quarterly testing windows that allowed candidates to sit for the Exam during specified dates. According to Prometric, 3,465 test events have already been scheduled between September 11-30, 2020, a previous blackout period, signifying increased flexibility and frequency in candidate testing. “Continuous testing has been a goal for some time, and it comes in direct response to feedback from CPA Exam candidates and their desire to test more frequently throughout the year. NASBA is proud to work in collaboration with the AICPA, Prometric and the 55 U.S. Boards of Accountancy to continue to ensure the security of the Exam and to implement a successful transition,” shared NASBA Executive Vice President & COO Colleen Conrad, CPA. The 55 U.S. Boards of Accountancy have endorsed the move to a Continuous Testing model as a means to support Exam candidates on their journey to CPA licensure. NASBA has created a Continuous Testing Status Map, which tracks the status of states with continuous testing. CPA Exam candidates are encouraged to refer to the map often for updates. “Increasing candidate convenience is one of our top priorities,” said Michael A. Decker, AICPA vice president of Examinations. “The move to continuous testing will give candidates the flexibility to develop a personal testing schedule that works best for them.” Under the continuous testing model, scores will be released on a rolling basis. Candidates wishing to learn more about continuous testing, as well as how the score release process will work, should visit the AICPA’s CPA Exam Score Release page, as well as follow NASBA via social media for updates.
