Acceptable Programs of Study: Connecticut CPE requirements state: "the overriding consideration in determining whether a specific program qualifies as acceptable continuing education is that it be a formal program of learning which contributes directly to the professional competence of an individual licensed to practice public accounting" and "the responsibility for substantiating that a particular program is acceptable and meets the requirements rests solely upon the applicant."
