To maintain an active CPA license in Alaska, certified public accountants have to fulfill a CPE requirement on a biennial basis.
Here is a summary for your reference:
CPE credits must be accumulated by December 31st, and the counting is done every 2 years on odd-numbered years.
Please note that a renewal form will be mailed to your address at least 30 days before the expiration. You’ve got to remember the renewal because there is no grace period to practice on an expired license.
Within these 2 years, CPAs registered in Alaska should fulfill at least 80 hours of accounting continuing education.

I am the author of How to Pass The CPA Exam (published by Wiley), and I also passed all 4 sections of the CPA Exam on my first try. Additionally, I have led webinars, such as for the Institute of Management Accountants, authored featured articles on websites like Going Concern and AccountingWeb, and I'm also the CFO for the charity New Sight. Finally, I have created other accounting certification websites to help mentor non-CPA candidates. I have already mentored thousands of CPA, CMA, CIA, EA, and CFA candidates, and I can help you too!
