Learning Objectives

This course will prepare you to do the following:

  • Identify core values of the accounting profession — independence, integrity, and objectivity — from both an ethical and rules-based point of view.
  • Recognize the responsibility CPAs have to maintain their integrity and honor the public's trust.
  • Recognize the manner in which the Code of Professional Conduct is intended to be applied by CPAs in a variety of professional situations.

A lively and thought-provoking course on a subject that is rarely considered in the context presented here. This is much more than a dialogue of the formal rules and regulations that govern members of the accounting profession.

This CPE course examines the basic principles of ethics that we all know quite well, but often fail to apply in our personal and professional lives. Ethical behavior involves more than mere knowledge of right and wrong. It also involves the motivation to alter inappropriate behavior. As the pressures related to career advancement and personal accomplishments mount, we sometimes abandon the traits that are basic to success. Designed to help participants identify those traits and reexamine their behavioral priorities, this course will also help you to understand that adherence to the AICPA Code of Professional Conduct and the rules and interpretations embodied therein is critical to CPAs in discharging the responsibilities they have to their employers, to their clients, and most importantly to the public.
