    I am located in CA and I just got a new job moving from a part-time position to a full-time one. I was wondering how the experience requirement works. After I mail in my experience hours for my current position, how can I check how many more hours I need to fulfill the requirement?


    Experience is state specific.

    I know in NY, all forms of accounting from audit to tax planning and tax prep count towards your hours. (Pre2009 only audit work counted and you needed 2000 hours or audit experience to be licensed).
    NY allows part time work. 2 part time weeks over 20 hours = 1 full time week.

    I am not sure how CA views part time work, or if you need a specific number of hours in different categories, or one main category. I am also not sure that you can check your experience tally after the form has been sent in. You might need to contact the CA state board, or potentially do some more digging on the CA website for additional information.

    FAR-93 11/9/17 (10wks, 250 hrs, Roger 1800+ MCQs, Gleim TB 600+MCQs, SIMs)
    AUD-88 12/7/17 (3 wks, 85 hrs, Roger 1000 MCQs no SIMs hail mary)
    REG-96 1/18/18 (6 wks, 110 hrs, 1400 MCQs, no SIMs)
    BEC-91 2/16/18 (4wks, 90 hrs, 1240 MCQs)


    I am not sure how CA works but I was originally a NC candidate and I could not submit experience verification until I submitted my application for the initial license with all of the affidavits that compiled all of the required experience. I did not have the option of submitting the forms as experience was earned.

    AUD - 93
    BEC - 82
    FAR - 76
    REG - 88

    Experience was the worst part of the journey for me. You?
    If you want things to change you have to do something different.
