Please note that this is a "text-based", not a "video-based" course. The materials are downloaded by the user, read and absorbed, and then the user takes the review and final assessment online at Illumeo as usual, where, once passed, all CPE is tracked and kept for long-term reference.

This 4-hour course is designed to meet the 4 hour Ethics CPE requirement for California State CPA.  It also discusses the AICPA Code of Conduct and the key differences between California State law and the AICPA Code of Conduct.

Review Questions and Final Exam are completed under section "Review and Test".

Learning Objectives

  • Identify ethics from an overall and professional perspective
  • Explore the ethical standards contained in the California Accountancy Act

The course covered the required material sufficiently. However there was a lot of repetition creating some inefficiencies. The length of time it took to complete the course was significantly more then the four hours stated. Partially due to the above mentioned repetition. The requirement of at least a 50 word review to provide feedback is ridiculous. It is unacceptable.

Course materials were good, the mentoring approach was good, and working with other people via the Internet was good. The instructor did a good job of communicating and making it a more intimate arrangement. A lot of online courses fail because of the isolation. Material is very good and I think it’s a very solid course. I learned a lot.

There was a lot of great information in this course as a ethical refresher. I really liked the important points and case studies. It was a little hard to read in some spots, not sure if this was just the pdf type font on my computer or just how the pdf was created.

Course materials cover a lot of areas and are very practical. It could be even better if the course is in a video format. I will save the course materials and use them as refer or reference in the future.

This course was efficient and covered the main objectives of ethics review course required to renew CPA license in California every 2 years. I would take this course again when I need to renew again.

This is a good refreshing of CPA ethics for every two years. The examples, cases, review questions and final questions provided practices on various common scenarios.
