Course Description

Professional conduct and ethical behavior are the backbone of the accounting and auditing profession. They are the components form the foundation upon which our creditability with the general public is built.  Without this foundation, there is no profession. Whether you are a practitioner in public accounting or business and industry, you are mandatorily required to act in accordance with the requirements that define professional conduct and ethical behavior.

This Arizona Ethics CPE webinar fulfills the Arizona State Board of Accountancy (Board) requirement that an applicant for renewal of a current license shall have completed 4 hours of continuing professional education in ethics within the 2-year license period immediately before the renewal period. 

The ethics CPE webinar covers a foundational understanding of ethics and ethical behavior; an overview of the core principles of professional conduct – integrity, objectivity, and independence; and a review of Arizona State Board of Accountancy Statutes and Administrative Rules.
