Certification or Licensing
Accounting professionals who file reports with the Securities and Exchange Commission are required by law to be certified public accountants. To earn this designation, you must complete 150 semester hours of college course work (in nearly all states), pass a qualifying examination, have at least two years of public accounting experience or the equivalent, and hold a certificate issued by the state in which you wish to practice. The Uniform CPA Examination, which is administered by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA), is used by all states. The examination has four parts: Audit and Attestation, Financial Accounting and Reporting, Regulation, and Business Environment & Concepts.
