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 3-hour course is designed to meet the 3-hour Ethics CPE requirement for Ohio CPAs. It provides an overview of ethical thought along with the core values of the CPA profession. The applicable laws and rules promulgated under Chapter 4701 of the Ohio Revised Code and Chapter 4701 of the Ohio Administrative Code are covered in detail.

The AICPA Code of Professional Conduct is also covered in detail. Case studies are utilized throughout the course to emphasize material.

Learning Objectives

  • Discover and define ethics from an overall and professional perspective.
  • Explore and describe the ethical rules contained in Chapter 4701 of the Ohio Administrative Code.
  • Identify and Describe the ethical standards contained in the AICPA Code of Professional Conduct.

Overall, the course met expectations. It seems geared towards CPAs in public practice. There were examples/case studies that were helpful in explaining concepts. Incorporating additional examples from non-public practice settings would make the course more relevant to CPAs not in public practice.

Very thorough and the notes and examples were definitely helpful. Glad I found this course to help with changing my inactive license back to an active license. The review questions were also very beneficial and navigating the website was easy. Thanks so much!

The review questions were not structured well. The premise in the question (ie. is this permitted) did not match well with the phrasing of the responses. However, the final exam questions were properly structured, reducing possible confusion.

Mostly a re-print of rules/regulations published by authoritative agencies. Most enjoyable part of the course were cases where real world examples were presented and discussed; which had the potential to be real food for thought.

It's a self study course. Read the materials. Take the exam. All of the tech functioned well which, I think, is as much as you can say about this kind of class! The downloadable .pdf was easy to follow.

very well presented and focused. I thought having the sample questions was a great idea. Giving real scenarios and case studies was a big help to relate to real life situations.
