Why study with the Alternative Dispute Resolution Academy (ADRA).

ADRA’s CPE main focus deals with Legal and Dispute Resolution matters in accountancy(Alternative Dispute Resolution for Accounting and Related Services Disputes).  Every business, accountancy no exception, has to the deal with he inevitable when serving your the public, conflict. Resolving and knowing methods of resolution is greatly appreciated by business owners and clients.  Therefore, CPAs serving as accountants, auditors, tax preparers, or business advisors—and the users of these services—should be familiar with the benefits and disadvantages of the various available alternative dispute resolution (ADR) forums to resolve disputes, especially since the alternative, traditional litigation, is often more expensive, time consuming, and public. See CPA Journal Article. ADR draws accounts and attention to related subjects as professional development and more sustainable accountancy practice.

If you are a Certified Public Accountant, you are required by the State Board of Accountancy to complete a certain number of continuing education units to keep your license active. These requirements can vary from state to state, and knowing the requirements in the state where you are licensed is critical to maintaining your CPA credential. Typically, the general requirements are to complete 120 hours every 3 years or 80 hours every other year. You need to learn how many hours to complete yearly, and which technical subjects you need to include in the hours. Most states will have a separate ethics requirement, around 4 to 6 hours.

How You Can Earn CPE

You do not necessarily need to take time off to attend a course to complete your requirements. While that is an option, accountants who have busy schedules typically prefer different delivery formats that are more convenient. You will need to decide what type of format will keep you engaged and will cater with your learning preferences. You can attend seminars and conferences with other accountants if you like to be surrounded by professionals. You can also study online with text-based courses, webcasts, or downloaded content. At the end of any of the courses you will need to complete an exam and pass it to get your credit.

To ensure that a school has classes that meets the standards you should verify that the provider is on the National Registry of CPE Sponsors. Only after you have done your homework and reviewed your options can you choose the best accounting classes and delivery format of continuing education for an accountant.
