CPAs in Colorado are required to take four ethics CPE credits every two years in accordance with their license renewal cycles. Other scenarios require special attention to ethics requirements.
You must complete and pass the Professional Ethics: The AICPA’s Comprehensive Course (PE) prior to receiving your Colorado CPA certificate.
After the State Board of Accountancy issues you an active certificate, you are required to take the Colorado Board of Accountancy Statutes, Rules, and Regulations (CR&R) course within six months of licensure (or within six months prior to receiving your license). For your convenience, the COCPA offers in-person, live simulcast, and on-demand formats of the CR&R. For details on course dates and times, please visit our course catalog.
Once you have completed your ethics requirement for your first license renewal, you must take four hours of ethics, of which up to two hours may be in Colorado Board of Accountancy Statutes, Rules, and Regulations (CR&R), for your subsequent license renewals.
You must complete and pass the Professional Ethics: The AICPA’s Comprehensive Course (PE) within two years immediately preceding the application date and two hours of Colorado Board of Accountancy Statutes, Rules and Regulations (CR&R) within six months immediately preceding or following the date the Board grants the initial certificate.

Ethics are of central importance to the CPA profession. But what do we mean by ethics? Is it just appropriate behavior, compliance with laws, or is it much more. In this course, we’ll discover what sets ethics apart and, therefore, sets the profession apart as well.
Please note that each of the COCPA courses expires one year from the purchase date. You may start and stop a course at will. Refunds requested within 30 days of purchase date are available for courses that have not been started.
