A few months ago we mentioned the Washington State Board of Accountancy and their new online system modernization project. The project is now complete!
Users will now notice a new, updated look when they use the Board's online system for renewals, initial applications, CPE tracker, and all other online services. The functionality is the same, but the process is easier, more accessible, and able to be used on modern web browsers and mobile devices. Additionally, CPE authoring companies can create accounts to add and manage their courses, which licensees can add to their list of completed courses in the new CPE tracker.
Please feel free to contact the Board with any questions you have about the modernization project.
