So I busted my chops to get my CPA license. But my boss has now decided to retire and sell off his firm piece by piece, which leaves me up Schitt’s Creek without a paddle. So basically I’m job searching. I’m entertaining both public & private job openings. However, one thing that concerns me is keeping my CPA license active if I were to make the switch to private. How do other Ninjas keep up with their CPE while in private? My state requires 120 every 3 years, so if you break that down, it’s 40 hrs per year. That’s an entire workweek of CPE. It seems like no private company is going to allow you to do that, especially if a CPA wasn’t a requirement of the job. There’s the risk of them saying “do it with your vacation time.” Which would suck! But I’m not in a place where I can really play hardball and stick to my guns…
So, to the point, for those in private, how do you keep up with your required CPE hours and how did you negotiate being able to perform CPE at work to keep your hard-earned license active?
