New online learning options for business and accounting professionals

Looking for CPD options that better fit your schedule? Our new virtual classrooms and podcasts are flexible, convenient and allow you to explore relevant, bite-sized content by topic or practice area.

As a busy CPA, you know that continuing professional development (CPD) is essential for maintaining a strong, up-to-date knowledge base. It’s also an opportunity to fine-tune skills in your area of expertise, explore emerging business trends and connect with like-minded professionals in your practice area.


Our online learning options cover a variety of subjects in different formats to help you meet annual CPD requirements. They’re flexible, accessible and designed to engage CPAs who want an education that goes beyond the traditional academic experience.

This spring, we are expanding our online learning portfolio with two new formats: virtual classrooms and podcasts. Both embrace the shift towards bite-sized content and the benefits of micro-learning, including better information retention and a quicker turnaround time between your studies and practical application at work.


Virtual Classrooms

Virtual classrooms allow you to connect with peers and subject matter experts to ask questions, share ideas and participate in real time. As a premium digital experience, virtual classrooms feature interactive case studies and live, hands-on group work that can be completed from the comfort of your home or office. 

This option is ideal for on-the-go professionals and senior business leaders who are interested in flexible professional development that doesn’t require travel or a multi-day commitment. Each virtual classroom offering is worth 3 CPD hours.


Curious minds may already be familiar with the perks of podcasts – but we’re pleased to offer a fresh take on them as a convenient, education option for members. 

Our six-part podcast series will cover hot topics for CPAs working across diverse industries, sectors and organizations. These podcasts are designed to complement and support your real-life experience in areas such as leadership and performance measurement or IT and innovation. 

Simply download your preferred podcast series and go through each individual podcast at your own pace, on your own schedule. It’s the perfect micro-learning opportunity for your commute. To earn CPD hours, you’ll need to complete a final quiz after listening to all six podcasts in the series.
