Best Practices

Best Practices

During the 2011 revisions process of the Statement on Standards for Continuing Professional Education (CPE) Programs (2012) (Standards), the NASBA CPE Task Force discussed ways to provide CPE sponsors supplemental information to assist in the development of CPE programs.  As a result, a Best Practices site has been developed.  The Best Practices site is intended to provide supplemental information to assist in the development, presentation, measurement and reporting of CPE programs and to share best practices and ideas among CPE program sponsors.  It does not represent “interpretations” of the Standards, and therefore, the contents of the Best Practices site are not enforceable or required.


The best practices are presented by delivery method (Group Live; Group Internet Based; QAS Self Study and Independent Study) and in four broad categories: development, presentation, measurement and reporting.

The Best Practices site is intended to be a working site, all CPE program sponsors are encouraged to submit best practices information to NASBA for consideration and inclusion.

Information should be submitted to Jessica Luttrull, Manager - National Registry, at jluttrull@nasba.org.
