Course Description

The California Board of Accountancy is responsible for regulating the accounting profession in the public interest through its licensure and enforcement programs. In this course, we'll look at selected sections of the Accountancy Act and California Board of Accountancy Regulations, highlighting their effect on the practice of accounting and citing cases where misconduct has led to Board disciplinary action. Recent California Board of Accountancy disciplinary actions throughout this course serve as great examples of the types of situations and actions that can lead to discipline from the Board.

Approved by the California Board of Accountancy (CBA) in November 2016.
