Meets CPA license renewal requirement. Meets CPA application requirement. Appropriate for audiences with majority CPAs.

As a profession, CPAs must be able to identify, evaluate and address any action or situation that threatens the core values of the CPA profession: integrity, objectivity, independence, and due care. However, when it comes to making the best decision, there’s not always one perfectly right answer for every situation. Professional ethics is about looking at several solutions and choosing the best path.

This course will help you gain perspective on the wide breadth of issues facing CPAs daily.

You will participate in an interactive review of the principles underlying the CPA code of conduct. We will look at the principles of responsibility, integrity, objectivity, and due care. We will review several cases to apply these concepts to our work. We will examine AICPA’s conceptual framework and how objectivity threats materialize within both professional services firms and corporate entities. We conclude with a refresher on continuing education, confidentiality, and other CPA responsibilities.

  • Upon completion participants will be able to: 
  • Describe the core ethical factors attributed to the CPA profession.
  • Identify the principles of conduct applicable to CPAs.
  • Describe factors contributing to ethical dilemmas.
  • Use the AICPA conceptual framework when facing situations where clear answers are not apparent.
