Ethics for California (4 Hrs)

Course Description

Ethics for California CPAs

In this course, we will define ethics and provide you with reasons you should be encouraged to continue educating yourself with the goal of achieving the highest standards of ethical conduct. The course will then discuss ethical reasoning and its application to common dilemmas that you may experience. Throughout this course, you will be provided with case studies that demonstrate the application of ethical principles, values, and ethical reasoning.

Note: California requires a board-approved 2-hour Regulatory Review course every 6 years. This course does not meet that requirement but is designed to meet the requirement for 4-hours of general ethics when a regulatory course is not required.
