Accounting & Auditing Update CPE Series

Why More CPAs Choose Surgent's A&A Update CPE Courses

Accounting and auditing standards are more complex today than ever before. While the ongoing efforts to simplify standards may someday ease the pressure, for now they simply mean even more new standards to understand and implement. In this ever changing environment, CPAs need so much more from their A&A training than just credit hours. They need rock solid information, intuitively delivered, with the practical insights and trending predictions that will help them make sense of it all--for themselves and their clients.

Surgent’s Accounting and Auditing Update courses deliver what today's CPAs need from the time and money they invest in CPE:

  • Detailed coverage of developments from FASB, AICPA, SEC, and other standard-setting bodies

  • The best trainers anywhere. Period.

  • Explanations that go beyond reciting the standard to actually help interpret and apply it

  • Case studies and examples to take that understanding even further

  • Flexible delivery formats

  • Competitive pricing

Whether you’re a CPA serving in public accounting or an accountant working in a corporate role such as CFO, Controller, or Comptroller, Surgent’s A&A Update CPE courses are simply your best choice.
