Earn CPE credits for education
As part of our continuing commitment to providing high-quality continuing professional education, Blackbaud is registered sponsor of the National Registry of CPE Sponsors, a program offered by the National Association of State Boards of Accountancy (NASBA). This registry recognizes that our continuing professional education for accountants meets nationally recognized standards.
Accountants are required by state governing boards to earn CPE credits to maintain and enhance their professional competence. As a registered sponsor, Blackbaud's name and address is printed on a registry that is distributed to state boards of accountancy and made available to licensed accountants across the country. A link to Blackbaud's website appears with our listing on the National Registry of CPE Sponsors on NASBA's website, www.nasba.org.
As a result, you may be eligible to receive CPE credits for successfully completing select Blackbaud University courses and bbCon conference sessions.
Which training options are eligible for CPE?
Group-live and group-Internet based courses in Blackbaud University's Financial Edge curriculum as well as Best Practices are eligible for CPE credit. This includes training conducted at our corporate headquarters in Charleston and our regional training facilities, and instructor-led training over the Internet. Tailored onsite training or training presented by our business partners is excluded from CPE credit. Additionally, Financial Edge Learn Labs and sessions within the financial track of bbCon may also be eligible.
How are the number CPE credits determined?
CPE credits are granted based on a 50-minute hour. Participants are eligible for one CPE credit for every 50 minutes of instruction attended.
Is CPE credit automatically awarded?
No. CPE credit is not automatically awarded. Letters or certificates of completion are available upon successfully completing a class. You are responsible for submitting this information to the State Boards of Accountancy.
Blackbaud is registered with the National Association of State Boards of Accountancy (NASBA) as a sponsor of continuing professional education on the National Registry of CPE Sponsors. State boards of accountancy have final authority on the acceptance of individual courses for CPE credit.
