Western CPE 25th Anniversary

25 Years -- and Counting

Since 1991, Western CPE has been a leader and innovator in the continuing professional education (CPE) industry, focused on accounting and finance professional education from the very beginning. 

The Western CPE Difference

A passion for people is built into our product. Beyond simply giving information, our instructors offer valuable, real-world insight and application, whether you're at a conference, attending a live webcast, or reviewing self-study materials at home. That kind of well-seasoned guidance and mentorship can be rare, but it is precisely what sets the Western CPE experience apart from other CPE providers. And, we're constantly expanding our courses to include comprehensive learning on the most current topics, including:

  • Accounting
  • Auditing
  • Taxation and Financial Planning
  • Ethics
  • Computer Applications and Technology
  • Corporate Finance
  • Government and Nonprofit
  • Management and Human Resources

Our History

Western CPE's roots in education run deep, beginning with our original partnership with the University of Montana and extending to nationally respected instructors and technology partners. Our business started by offering unique live conferences, always choosing ideal locations for mixing learning with a bit of fun relaxation -- just as our CPE Conferences continue to do today.

But Western CPE quickly expanded and became among the first in the industry to offer online self-study and CPE webcasts, raising the bar for high-quality online learning. Today, we're one of the most trusted producers of CPE in the accounting and finance industry, helping professionals meet their CPE credit requirements through best-in-class education.

Our Success is YOU


Twenty-five years on, we're still running our company out of the same small town, involving educational, technical, and creative team members from across the country to bring the very best educational products and experiences to you. We're cutting edge in many ways, but still old school when it comes to customer service. We answer the phone when you call, or call you back if you leave us a message online. That is how we want to do business, an that is why so many finance and accounting professionals turn to us for the CPE they need.

The very best part of our story is the success of the professionals we serve. We're very proud of the trust we've earned from our customers, and we'll work hard to keep it -- for another 25 years and beyond.
