How To Become A CPA


After earning a degree in accounting and gaining work experience as an accountant, many inside the accounting profession strive to become a Certified Public Accountant (CPA).

A CPA is the certification title awarded in the United States to accountants who meet stringent professional qualifications and who pass the Uniform CPA Examination.

The benefits include increased competence, higher salary, recognition as a member of an elite group of professionals, and an improved perception in the eyes on individuals seeking to hire and work with an accountant.


Requirements For Becoming A CPA


The requirements associated with becoming a CPA vary by state but often include the following: an accounting degree, work experience in an accounting field, passing the Uniform Certified Public Accountant Examination (CPA Exam), and passing an examination on ethics.

Once an accountant receives certification as a CPA they are generally required to annually or biannually complete a designated number of hours in Continuing Professional Education (CPE) courses to maintain their status as a CPA.

Because CPA certification requirements vary by state, an accountant may only use the CPA designation in states from which they have received a license.

CPATrainingCenter.com provides the most up-to-date CPA training for each state in order to ensure you have the information necessary to earn the CPA designation.
