Kentucky has a simple education requirement and does not require 150 semester units to sit for the exam. This has to be fulfilled upon the application of the license.
After the Uniform CPA exam and ethics exam, 1 year of public or non-public accounting experience is enough to get the CPA license. The great thing is that this experience needs to be verified but not necessarily supervised by a CPA.
*Launched in Apr 2016* The NASBA Experience Verification service is now available to those who do not have access to an active U.S. CPA for verification.
CPE is needed for license holders. Click here for Kentucky CPA CPE requirements.

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!
