Individuals who are practicing — actively performing internal audit or related activities — are required to complete 40 hours of CE per year. Non-practicing individuals — not actively performing internal audit or related activities — are required to complete 20 hours of CE per year.
To meet the needs of all CIAs, Surgent offers more than 1,200 CPE webinars each year, a full library of self-study courses, tailored in-firm seminars and training, and accounting exam prep programs for several core credentials and certifications.
