    Free CPA CPE

    Is it really possible to obtain CPA CPE credits for free? Yes, under certain circumstances.
  • An organization may provide free CPE courses in return for you being listed with them for employment purposes. (Generally offered by placement firms.)
  • A CPE provider may allow you to take a pilot course for free in return for your feedback and information about total time of completion, before they offer the course to the general public.
  • A CPE course provider may provide the course to you for free, but may charge a testing and/or grading fee.
  • There is one other circumstance where a provider will offer a course for free with no strings attached. There are a few CPA CPE providers who will provide you with a course for free, with no testing fee or any other hidden fees, and no strings attached. The amount of credit hours granted with the free course is generally one hour of credit, involving a total of two hours of actual coursework. Usually it is one free course per customer. The reason why some CPE providers provide these free "loss leader" courses is for advertising. The provider feels that once you take one of their courses, you will see the quality, professionalism, and projection of knowledge that the company's courses provide, and anticipate that you will come back for more courses for which a fee is charged. In addition, the provider would then get a customer that they can add to their mailing list for future advertising.
