Overview

Professional conduct and ethical behavior are really the backbone of the entire accounting and auditing profession. These components form the foundation upon which our creditability with the general public is built, without which, there is no profession. Whether you are a practitioner in public accounting or business and industry, you must always act in accordance with the requirements that define professional conduct and ethical behavior. This course fulfills the Massachusetts Board of Public Accountancy (Board) requirement that during the two-year period immediately preceding re-licensing, applicants for biennial license renewal must complete four hours of acceptable continuing education in the area of professional ethics. The course includes a brief look at the principles and concepts which form the foundation of ethical behavior; an overview of the core principles of professional conduct -- integrity, objectivity, and independence; recent changes to the AICPA Code of Professional Conduct; and a review of the Board’s Rules and Regulations governing the practice of public accountancy. The primary objective of this course is to provide a formal program of learning which contributes directly to the professional competence of an individual licensed to practice public accountancy in Massachusetts.

Major Topics:

  • Principles and concepts which form the foundation of ethical behavior
  • The core principles of professional conduct -- integrity, objectivity, and independence
  • Recent changes to the AICPA Code of Professional Conduct
  • Massachusetts Board of Public Accountancy Rules and Regulations
