How many CPE credits can I earn for attending?

There is a maximum of 30.5 (29 NASBA credits); however, the number of CPE credits you receive is based on the number of sessions you attend. Please check individual sessions for more details. Make sure you get your badge scanned at each session so we can keep track of your CPE credits.

The Institute of Management Accountants is registered with the National Association of State Boards of Accountancy (NASBA) as a sponsor of Continuing Professional Education on the National Registry of CPE Sponsors. In accordance with the standards for the National Registry of CPE Sponsors, group live CPE credits will be based on a 50-minute hour. State Boards on Accountancy will have the final authority on the acceptance of individual courses for CPE credit. Complaints regarding registered sponsors may be submitted to the National Registry of CPE Sponsors through its website.
