Understanding CPE & CPD Credits

This article explains Kubicle's approach to awarding CPE or CPD credits for course completions.

How CPE/CPD Credits Work

Kubicle partner with NASBA and the CPD Standards Office to provide Kubicle Learners with CPE/CPD credits whenever they successfully complete a course exam. These credits can be earned for each certificate earned whenever an exam is completed and can be viewed in the your Certificates screen.


The credits provided by Kubicle for each course are based on a standardized formula used for NASBA accreditation. Course credits are available in increments of 0.5 and are delivered for each course by rounding down the figure achieved through this calculation:


[Total Lesson Video Durations + Total Exercise Solution Video Durations + (Exercise Sub-Question Count + Exam Question Count)(1.85)]/50]



Developed in 1990, the National Registry of CPE Sponsors is a program offered by the National Association of State Boards of Accountancy (NASBA) to recognize CPE program sponsors like Kubicle who provide continuing professional education (CPE) programs in accordance with nationally recognized standards. Many State Boards of Accountancy require CPAs to earn required CPE credits through companies approved on the National Registry of CPE Sponsors.
