    Regulations on Continuing Professional Education

    13:29-6.1 Scope

    All licensees subject to the provisions of N.J.S.A. 45.2B-42 et seq. shall comply with the provisions of this subchapter relating to continuing professional education (CPE). These rules apply to all licensees registered by the Board of Accountancy in order to enhance the professional competence of such licensees.

    13:29-6.2 Credit-hour requirements

    1. Each applicant for a triennial license renewal is required to complete, during the preceding triennial period, 120 hours of continuing professional education. The types of continuing professional education programs and other sources of continuing professional education for which credit hours may be obtained are set forth in N.J.A.C. 13:29-6.5. The 120 hours of continuing professional education shall include at least 24 credit hours in the areas of auditing, review and compilation for persons who are engaged in the practice of public accounting or are involved with the attest function in issuing audit, review or compilation reports. All applicants shall complete at least 72 credit hours of the required 120 credit hours in the technical subjects set forth in N.J.A.C. 13:29-6.3. The remaining 48 credit hours of the required 120 credit hours may include subjects specified in N.J.A.C. 13:29-6.4. No licensee shall receive credit for any course offered by a Board approved continuing professional education sponsor in subjects other than those enumerated in N.J.A.C. 13:29-6.3 or 13.29-6.4.

    2. Persons failing to meet the continuing professional education requirements for a triennial renewal period shall not be issued a current license until such continuing professional education requirements have been satisfied. The Board may modify this policy on an individual basis under circumstances specified under N.J.S.A. 45:2B-68. Failure to meet triennial continuing professional education requirements may subject a licensee to disciplinary action by the Board.

    3. The Board may, in its discretion, waive requirements for continuing professional education on an individual basis for reasons of hardship such as health, military service, or other due cause. A waiver of continuing professional education requirements granted pursuant to this subsection shall only be effective for the triennial period in which such waiver is granted. If the condition(s) which necessitated the waiver persists into the next triennial period, a licensee shall apply to the Board for the renewal of such waiver for the new triennial period. Inactive accountants shall be exempt from continuing professional education requirements. Inactive licensees are those who do not practice accounting (public or private) or hold themselves out to the public as practicing accountants in any professional capacity. Any licensee who returns to the practice of accounting shall notify the Board prior to reinstatement and shall meet the continuing professional education requirements by completing 120 credit hours of continuing professional education requirements prescribed by this subchapter within the three year period prior to reinstatement. Licensees inactive for more than one year, but not exceeding two years, shall satisfy at least 80 credit hours of continuing professional education within the two year period prior to reinstatement. Licensees inactive for one year or less will satisfy the requirements by completing at least 40 credit hours of continuing professional education in the year prior to reinstatement.

    13:29-6.3 Qualifying technical subjects

    1. The following subjects are acceptable for satisfaction of the required 72 credit hours of continuing professional education in technical subjects over the triennial period.
