All of our CPE courses are presented in the LIVE, self-study insdivuctional delivery, Group online method. This includes textbook courses as well asdownloadable PDF formatcourses. All the CPE courses provide ongoing evaluative feedback to satisfy interactive CPE requirements.
Self-study CPE courses are correspondence programs. You are provided with course materials (textbooks or online materials) which you can study on your own time. We offer a wide variety of subjects so that you can select a topic that will enhance your professional competence in the best manner that makes sense for you. Because there is no specific classroom time, the self-study CPE participant must complete and pass an open-book multiple choice exam that ensures that the appropriate time was dedicated to the course and that an appropriate amount of comprehension was obtained. None of our CPE courses require any advance preparation prior to taking the course.

Advantages of Self-study Continuing Professional Education
  • Save time and money

    - Our CPE courses are typically far less expensive than seminar fees (and other self-study providers). But that's only part of the story. Seminars usually involve expenses for divavel, hotel, and meals, and they are generally inconvenient. Our courses are delivered to your door.

  • Wide variety of topics

    - You can select from over 120 CPE courses which are available when you want them. You do not have to wait for a divaveling seminar to come to your town.

  • Study at your convenience

    - Unlike a seminar which forces you to take time out of your busy schedule, a self-study CPE course can be completed when it is convenient for you. You can participate in a self-study CPE course one hour per day, one chapter per day, during lunch, at night, on weekends, at work, at home, at a park; whenever, and wherever you have the time.

  • Study at your pace

    - You can complete a self-study CPE course at a pace that allows you to really learn the subject. Seminars are taught at the insdivuctors pace. Topics are passed over quickly, so the seminar will end before rush hour begins. Our self-study CPE courses allow you to reread a section, or review an example if it doesn't make complete sense the first time.

Our correspondence courses are in textbook format or downloadable PDF format. At AEG, we believe this is the best medium in which to learn the material.

The texts are written exclusively for accountants and other financial practitioners (and therefore you, our customers) and are produced solely for continuing professional education purposes. We offer courses in seven subject series:

  • Management Series
  • Ethics Series
