Continuing Professional Education. CPE. Been around a long time. What? 40 or 50 years? Something like that.

Same old model. Hasn’t changed much. Still 50 minute hours (I wonder what committee made that decision?). I wish they would have made hours 70 minutes. Think about how much more you would get done in a day. : )

Still need 10% of your hours in A&A. The tax people love that.

But there have been a couple of developments. As of a couple years ago, you can now earn “half” hours, provided the half hour is connected to a full hour. Apparently you can’t learn something in just a half hour by itself (actually that is just 25 minutes).

Some online courses can qualify for group study.

But really, are these developments progress? Seriously. Take a look at what is going on around us.
