CPE

 
Our CPE Program Manager Lisa Vallad recently returned from the NASBA Summit, a National Association of State Boards of Accountancy event. The OUC’s participation in this annual conference is critical to ensuring the ongoing success and compliance of our Continuing Professional Education for Certified Public Accountants (CPE for CPAs) Program.
The OUC is pleased to present a new fiscal year-ful of Continuing Professional Education (CPE) beginning Tue, Sept 16, 2014. Registration for that day is now available online at www.cu.edu/controller/schedule-and-registration.
On Wed, April 23, the OUC was pleased to host an Appreciation Event for instructors in our Continuing Professional Education (CPE) Program. The program provides free CPE credit to the University’s certified public accountants (CPAs), as well as to those with certain other certifications (fraud examiner, etc.). It also offers no-cost professional development and training to employees who are not CPAs.
Three days of April CPE wrap up the final quarter for the OUC’s Continuing Professional Education (CPE) program in FY 2014. Classes on April 10 were filled to capacity … and filled with lively discussion between instructors and participants. The day’s offerings included courses on Cognos m-Fin reports, budgeting basics, and PowerPoint/Word.
This quarter, our Continuing Professional Education (CPE) offerings are proving more popular than ever. All 14 courses are filling rapidly. And little wonder: These courses are designed to help you deepen your knowledge of the Cognos Reporting System, get organized for fiscal year-end, understand the intricacies of accruals, expand your proficiency in PowerPoint and Word ... and more.
The Cognos Reporting System is a fast-moving financial reporting tool. How do you keep up with OUC staff members Carl Sorenson and Sarju Khadka ... and their continuous Cognos improvements (enhancements to existing reports and development of new reports)?
Are you:
  • Interested in learning something new?
  • Conscientious about fulfilling your fiscal responsibilities?
  • Looking for a way to earn Continuing Professional Education (CPE) credit as a Certified Public Accountant (CPA)?
The OUC is offering 3 days of CPE this quarter: April 10 (6 courses), April 15 (4 courses), and April 17 (4 courses). You can register now at https://content.cu.edu/controller/cpe/?page_id=1504
An excellent response – in registrations and evaluations – to our Continuing Professional Education (CPE) offerings this quarter. We presented 4 new courses, and 2 popular repeats, at the Grant Street building in February. A hearty “welcome!” to the 10 participants who were completely new to the CPE Program. And a “thank you!” to all attendees, who gave us a 97% strongly/agree for effectiveness of instructors, relevance of topics, and delivery of learning objectives. We’ll open registration for April CPE classes soon.
Departments with sponsored project activity: check out the new Cognos Reporting System folder, Finance > Project Reports. And in particular, check out the newest addition to that folder, m-Fin PROJECT FINANCIAL STATUS. This report is getting great reviews from faculty and staff who love its project-only focus and comprehensive scope. It’s similar to the popular m-Fin OPERATING SUMMARY but was designed (and runs) exclusively for projects. 
CPAs and professional development-seekers: go for it! Registration is now open for 2 days of continuing professional education at 1800 Grant Street. On Tue Feb 18, we present a series of 4 NEW courses: External Audits; State of a CPA Nation; Month-End Financial Close (this course is already on wait-list, email cu.cpe@cu.edu to get on the list); and Paperless Financial Reconciliation. On Thu Feb 20, we repeat 2 old favorites: Understanding and Preparing the Statement of Cash Flows, and Understanding Internal Controls.
