The 7 Industry-Leading Features of Illumeo's CPE Platform

Illumeo Customer Success's Profile

There are over 2,000 NASBA-approved CPE providers nationally; All providing Continuing Education for CPAs and other certified accountants. With a growing number of online providers, it can be challenging for individuals, firms, and enterprises to choose the best platform. Primarily, because requirements vary among users, individuals may choose to focus more on Unlimited CPE credits and CPE Compliance Monitor, while firms and enterprises may have more interest in a CPE platform’s utility beyond CPE Credits. 

Illumeo is a CPE Platform that is purposefully designed to meet the needs of both individual and business users. Below are 7 features of Illumeo CPE that put us a step above the competition: 

1. CPE Subscription – Individual Vs Enterprise

Almost all CPE providers sell similar CPE subscriptions to both individuals and businesses. There are often no differences in subscription features apart from pricing – usually a discount for group subscriptions. Illumeo, however, created separate CPE products with user-specific functions. No other CPE Provider matches Illumeo’s CPE subscription features.

7. Professional Development

It’s a big question – Does CPE really add to professional learning and development? Most CPE providers sell their courses both as a source of CPE credits and for professional development. Does it really meet both needs though? Not always. Most CPE platforms don’t have the tools to really dig deep into the real-life training needs of a working professional. But Illumeo does.

Our LMS for CPE pioneered the concept of linking CPE with the actual training needs of professionals. Our self and managed assessments help professionals and managers to know their or their team’s training needs. Once the assessment has identified real-world functional areas requiring improvement, our AI-enabled course recommendation chooses a set of courses for the user. Similarly, managers can recommend courses for their team members and even carve out separate learning plans for their team members. These functionalities and features remain specific to Illumeo and help thousands of our subscribers earn CPE credits while becoming functional experts.
