Finding Your CPE Transcript

It will be the responsibility of each CPA to log in to their dashboard and download their Certificates of Completion and Transcripts, check for accuracy, and submit to the State Board of Accountancy. To do so, follow these steps:

  • Log in to alabama.cpa
  • Once logged in, hover over your name in the top right corner. Once the dropdown menu appears, select CPE History & Transcript under the My Learning section.
  • A full collection of your completed CPE will display, with two options at the top - Print or Download CSV.

As part of our new system, and to make this reporting more efficient for our members, ASCPA has fashioned the reporting (CSV) to match the State Board of Accountancy template. Please pay close attention to the credits, ensuring all reporting is accurate and complete. Please also note that the category of “Behavioral/Personal Development” CPE has been shortened to just reflect “Personal Development,” and that moving forward CPAs are limited to 12 hours in this category each fiscal year

Logging into a CPE Course

  • The broadcast works best on any browser other than Microsoft Internet Explorer. The broadcast will also work on most portable devices running Apple's iOS, Google's Android or ChromeOS.
  •  If the video freezes, goes blank or you lose audio, refresh/reload the page. This typically reconnects you to the video.
  • Popup prompts will appear approximately every 15 minutes during the broadcast.
  • There is no verbal prompt from the presenter, but you will hear a short audio prompt. You will need to click "OK" on the prompt to verify that you are watching.
  • In order to receive CPE credit, at least 75% of the attendance prompts must be answered. This is a requirement of the Alabama State Board of Public Accountancy. In order to receive full CPE credit, you must respond to at least 75% of the attendance prompts.
  • If you log in, or join the course after it has begun, you run the risk of missing an attendance prompt.
