Unlimited CPE for NYSSCPA Members

Introducing a New Member Benefit!
 
NYSSCPA members now have free unlimited access to over 150 CPE courses in our Self Study Course Catalog.
 
"I enjoy the online CPE because it allows for me to stay up-to-date with pertinent accounting issues while studying on my own time. I can pause the sessions and resume at my convenience. I feel the CPE is highly relevant as a majority of the sessions have lecturers who are experts in their field. The online interface that NYSSCPA utilizes is user friendly and allows me to easily sort by topic."
– Greg Kozerski, Jr., NYSSCPA Member
