The FICPA has a variety of CPE formats to help Florida CPAs and financial professionals stay knowledgeable and relevant in today's fast-paced business world. In addition to self-study programs, online education and on-site training, every year the FICPA offers more than 300 live CPE events in 20 Florida cities. We make every effort to provide CPE programs that are convenient, local, valuable and high quality while also offering networking opportunities. The FICPA has three types of live CPE events: seminars, conferences and shows.
A typical FICPA seminar follows a classroom-style of program, focuses on a single topic, is a four to eight hours and can be offered in multiple cities. There are seminars offered on a variety of topics that are relevant to the needs of CPAs’ varying professional focuses. These live events provide an opportunity to meet and network with other financial professionals who are looking for similar knowledge. Search our upcoming seminars to find the ones right for you.
An FICPA conference is ideal for the Florida CPA seeking a full or multiple day immersion of more than 20 pertinent topics. Most are held in one major city, though many have developed and are offered in two. Most conferences follow an agenda with an industry-focus which offers a unique and valuable networking opportunity with peers, speakers and, in several programs, professionals in complimentary industries such as law, government, construction and health care. Many of the conferences also have sponsors and exhibitors that provide participants with the opportunity to see the latest products and services that are available. FICPA also has six conferences hosted by a chapter or university to provide the conference-style of program with a more general agenda. Find the conferences in your area or professional focus.
