One of the most frustrating aspects of earning CPA CPE credits is affordability — or rather the unaffordability. For instance, a quick check of the AICPA store reveals a litany of highly-priced courses. And when taking cost into account, they seem to be worth a disproportionate number of CPE credits. Of course, CPAs who can rely on employers to compensate the cost of CPE might not consider price an obstacle. But others still have to pay out of their own pocket. And finding cheap CPA CPE credits can also be as difficult as it is necessary. Fortunately, VTR Learning offers a host of affordable online courses for CPAs. So, if you’re looking for cheap CPA CPE credits with quality content, try one of these five courses under $100.
