CPAs EARN PROFESSIONAL CREDITS AT PALISADE SEMINARS
4 November 2004, Ithaca, NY - Palisade Corporation was recently approved as a Continuing Professional Education (CPE) provider by the National Association of State Boards of Accountancy (NASBA). Now Certified Public Accountants (CPAs) who attend Palisade risk and decision analysis seminars will receive valuable CPE credits.
CPAs regularly attend seminars in traditional areas of auditing, taxation, and ethics. But as the profession has expanded and financial risk has come to the forefront, many CPAs add risk assessment to their list of competencies.
The National Registry of CPE Sponsors lists organizations that provide high quality education in accordance with nationally recognized standards. According to Heather Lumpkin, Supervisor of Compliance Services at NASBA, “Palisade is now in the select company of organizations that are entitled to grant NASBA credits.”
“As the field of accountancy has grown to encompass risk responsibility, a solid grounding in quantitative risk analysis is an essential tool for CPAs” says Thom Holm CPA, Palisade’s Controller. He adds, “Now CPAs can develop their competency in risk and decision analysis to meet the increasing demand from their clients and employers for this skill set.”
Combined with Palisade’s recently awarded Project Management Institute Registered Education Provider (PMI REP) status, the NASBA approval further confirms Palisade’s position as the leading provider of risk and decision analysis training services.
