Are you often running out of time to complete your credits every year and then settle for any online CPE course from any ed-tech platform just to do the needful? Then you need to take a pause from the everyday hustle, sit back and think!

What is it that you missed? "A Plan! "

You need to remember that this is the digital age and the most precious commodity you gain or lose today is not Bitcoin, but time! Let us walk you through some of the key reasons why you should be planning your continuing education courses.

TRUE LEARNING

To understand this, you need to step back and look at the bigger picture. It is important to know that continuing education for accounting, tax, and finance professionals is essential to keep abreast with the latest developments, regulations, and provisions that have happened in these fields in a year. Apart from that the authorities also expect that you devote some time to enhance your education to match the growing requirements of the professional ecosystem. So, when you rush with your courses at the 11th hour, you are not doing yourself any good. Infact the amount or the time you spend on such rushed credits can be easily bucketed as waste, which only gives you your qualifying credits without any learning.

Latter is possible only when you have planned your time across the year, well in advance not just in terms of months but also subjects. This well-spaced and planned process will enhance your knowledge apart from fulfilling the minimum credit requirements. my-CPE.com has always believed in providing true meaningful continuing education therefore the majority of the webinars are scheduled on multiple dates so that you can plan your schedule accordingly. The CPE webinars are presented by some of the finest professionals, industry leaders and keynote speakers in the accounting community, and it is definitely worth your time and energy to sit and imbibe knowledge.

BETTER VALUE FOR YOUR MONEY

We assume that you have understood how your planning can impact your learning, it now makes sense to understand how to get maximum value from the free CPE webinars that are offered by and the time you invest. Remember when you are charting out your plan, you have kept enough space for revisions and making suitable notes if required. Back-to-back webinars will just keep adding files to your brain-drive, without giving you time to even name them, only to be lost in oblivion. Hence, to get maximum value you need to space it well and ensure there is a sufficient gap between successive courses, so you can revisit the subject/topic without any rush.

CHOICE OF SUBJECTS

If you are a CPA, EA, CMA, CIA, CFP, TEP, CFF, PFS, CITP, CFE, ABV, CVA, SHRM Professional, HRCI Professional or any other accounting, tax or finance professional, then you very well know that the importance of continuing education is much more than mere educational credits. You seriously have to be aligned and in-touch with the latest developments & regulations in your field of work, failing which you are simply left incapacitated to discharge your duties in the best interests of your clients. You might have your credit requirements fulfilled but this hollowness created by the knowledge void will continue to haunt you till you sit down to make up for it. Hence, the need for a plan becomes compelling in your case. Planning will give you enough space to work around your strengths and weaknesses, before selecting the type and time of free CPE courses you want to opt for. My-CPE.com offers a wide variety of subjects to choose from, but yet again you will gain only if you have proper time
