Tennessee

The Tennessee State Board of Accountancy met on November 15, 2002 and discussed the interpretation of rule 0020-5-.05 (1)(b) regarding the requirements for sponsors wishing to be placed on the Tennessee Roster. The board ruled that sponsors wishing to be placed on the Tennessee Roster can offer no more than 5 courses and the courses cannot exceed a total of 16 hours per year. All courses must be offered within Tennessee.

If sponsors offer more than 5 courses, or more than 16 CPE credits, they are required to apply for membership to the National Registry of CPE Sponsors program.
