  • Due to the revisions to the Statement on Standards for Continuing Professional Education (CPE) Programs(Standards), as well as changes implemented by NASBA to offer one designation for self study programs – QAS Self Study – there is a transition process that must be completed by all current QAS and Registry self study sponsors to the QAS Self Study designation.
