Now that I have passed the exams, I am trying to figure out the AICPA webcast pass. Can I pay for this pass and get my 40 hour requirement filled or is this just a discount to the webcasts? I was trying to buy with the Black Friday sale of 25% that is going on now through December 2nd and the AICPA offices are closed. If anyone knows, please advise. Thanks.
I have the pass. Once you buy the pass, some webcasts are free to take. Not all of them but there's a lot. There's usually a quarterly schedule on the AICPA website. Once you have the pass, you go through your purchase list to sign up for webcasts. One thing I've noticed is that not every session of the same webcast will be included on the pass, especially when it is first added to the schedule. Keep checking back, and if it gets close the Customer Service team can register you. Also, depending on your state's rules about maximum credit per license year, you may want to sign up to straddle 2 different license years. I got 20% off during Labor Day weekend so they do run other sales.
My state allows me to have no more than 24 of my 80 hours come from a non-live format, so I really need those live webinars or I am paying a fortune for in-person classes. With scheduling the pass to overlap my license years, I could get 76 credits (everything except state-specific ethics) on one year of the pass. Not sure what I'll do for the next cycle, but this was relatively cheap and easy.
