Can Anyone help me interpreting this Alaska statute experience requirement for CPA license:
12 AAC 04.180. DOCUMENTATION OF EXPERIENCE.
(a) An applicant for initial issuance of a license under 12 AAC 04.165 or 12 AAC 04.175 must show that the applicant has had two years of experience. That experience must include providing any type of service or advice involving the use of accounting, attest, compilation, management advisory, financial advisory, tax, or consulting skills and related training all of which were verified by a supervising certified public accountant with an active license at the time of supervision. The experience is acceptable if it is gained through employment in government, industry, academia, or public practice. Experience does not include paid or unpaid leave or holidays.
(b) One year of experience must consist of full or part-time employment that extends over a period of not less than a year and not more than four years and includes not fewer than 2,000 hours of performance of services described in (a) of this section.
Am I correct in understanding that technically Alaska board needs 4000 hours of specified experience to satisfy the two years experience criteria for CPA license?
