Important Notice on CPE Audits

The Georgia State Board of Accountancy will once again be utilizing NASBA to conduct the CPE Audits for the 2016-2017 reporting period. Active Georgia CPAs will be randomly selected from our database by March 31, 2018. If selected, you will receive an email and letter from NASBA outlining your requirements. All documentation will be due to NASBA by June 30, 2018. Failure to respond to the audit notice will result in an automatic failure of the full CPE requirement for the 2016-2017 reporting period.
On April 1, 2018, the AICPA will offer CPA candidates an enhanced testing experience with the launch of its new exam software at all Prometric test centers. The software modernizes the exam’s format, functionality and design, giving access to a high-definition display and new and improved tools. One of the biggest changes coming to the exam is the introduction of Microsoft Excel® as a tool. While candidates will not be tested on their ability to use the program, it is available for use during each exam section. Other new features include a dedicated workspace to more easily toggle and view exhibits, a highlight function to help remember key elements in an exhibit and seamless cut, copy and paste. To learn more about the exam software and its features, view the CPA Exam Tutorial video at http://exams.aicpa.org/cpaexam/start.html. To aid in exam preparation, the AICPA has updated its tutorial topics to guide the user through the coming changes. Candidates are also encouraged to practice with the new sample tests that present the exam as it will appear in an actual test center. With the launch of the new exam software, the AICPA must ensure that the improvements do not impact the fairness and reliability of the exam. This will require minor score holds for the Q2, Q3 and Q4 test windows where scores will be released only once after the close of each window. The holds will allow the AICPA to review test question performance with the new software. For specific release dates, view the Score Release Timeline at https://www.aicpa.org/becomeacpa/cpaexam/.
