If I teach a course, how many CPE credits do I get?

Vernon Greene -

If you teach a course which contributes directly to the professional competency of a CPA, you can obtain three CPE hours for each hour of class time that you teach. Teaching courses for credit is only allowable the first time the course is taught. Subsequent teaching for the same course work yields no CPE credit. The additional two hours of CPE is considered prep time. Remember, CPE earned through teaching is limited to no more than 50 percent of your total CPE requirements. Also, the sponsor must be registered with NASBA or be exempt from registration.
