Indiana CPA CPE Requirements and Courses

Indiana CPA CPE RequirementsTo maintain the CPA status, all CPA licensees in Indiana have to fulfill a CPA CPE requirement on a triennial basis.

Here is a summary for your reference:

Indiana CPA CPE Requirements

CPE credits have to be accumulated by December 31, but it’s fine as long as you report on or before June 30 of the following year.

Within these 3 years, CPAs registered in Indiana should fulfill at least 120 hours of accounting continuing education.

Specific Requirements

  • Among the 120 hours, at least 12 hours (10%) must be in accounting or auditing
  • At least 20 hours need to be fulfilled every year
  • Maximum self-study courses: 60 hours, or 50% of the requirement
  • Ethics CPE: 4 hours during the reporting period

A Note On CPE Course Providers

Please note that while Indiana does not pre-approve or register the CPA CPE course providers, for your own protection, please call up or find out whether the course provider complies with the requirements prescribed in 872 IAC 1-3-3.4 of the Indiana Accountancy Regulations, which states that the course must be “formally organized, primarily instructional, and contribute directly to professional competence in the practice of public accountancy”.
