Overview

Professional conduct and ethical behavior are really the backbone of the entire accounting and auditing profession. These components form the foundation upon which our creditability with the general public is built, without which, there is no profession. Whether you are a practitioner in public accounting or business and industry, you must always act in accordance with the requirements that define professional conduct and ethical behavior. This course fulfills the Texas State Board of Public Accountancy (Board) requirement, pursuant to Board Rule 523.131, that every licensee must complete a 4-hour ethics course approved by the Board. In addition, licensees must complete this 4-hour ethics course on a 2-year cycle (i.e., every other year). The course provides a foundational understanding of ethics and ethical behavior; an overview of the core principles of professional conduct -- integrity, objectivity, and independence; and a review of the Board’s Rules of Professional Conduct. This course also includes several case studies that help you apply the concepts covered in the course. The overall objective of this course is to contribute directly to your professional competence as a Texas CPA.
