Palisade Training: Professional Credits for CPAs

Palisade 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.

Risk Training Growing Among CPAs
CPAs regularly attend seminars in traditional areas of auditing, taxation, and ethics. But as corporate risk has become more important to businesses and investors, a solid understanding of risk quantification and assessment is essential.

Palisade Joins Distinguished List
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.”

Leader in Risk Training
Combined with Palisade’s recently awarded Project Management Institute Registered Education Provider (PMI REP) status, the NASBA approval further confirms Palisade’s position as a leading provider of risk and decision analysis training services.
