Claiming CPE Credit

To claim CPE credits under NASBA guidelines, the CPA must successfully complete a ClineSys course within one year from the date of purchase. The CPE credits for each chapter of each course are listed on tables accessed from the course links to the right. As of September 2010, ClineSys offers CPE credits for the Excel 2016, Excel 2013, and Excel 2010. As of September 2014, ClineSys training courses are CPE/QAS certified by NASBA.

Access 2016 and SQL, Access 2013 and SQL, and Access 2010 and SQL and SQL courses are also published for CPE/QAS self-study credits - up to 40 hours by completion, awarded by chapter! Upon completion, you can earn an ExcelCEO Reporting and Analysis Master certification on top of the phenomenal skills you would have by then, and be included in the ExcelCEO Graduate Verification! If you have a copy of Microsoft and are interested in taking one of the Access courses for CPE credit at a significantly discounted price, use code AccessCPE (case-sensitive) to save $100. For questions, please contact us at

To obtain the Certificate of Completion for each chapter you have completed, sign on to with your registered email address and password, and click on the Certificates link in your ExcelCEO student account to complete a short survey on the chapter, then print a copy of the Certificate of Completion.
