This series of CPE courses is a part of the comprehensive Not-for-Profit Certificate I Program. This track can be purchased individually, or as a part of the full Certificate Program.

The 12 courses included in this track aim to provide a comprehensive foundation in financial accounting and reporting standards that apply to each of the major transaction cycles of a not-for-profit entity (NFP). Ideal for someone new to NFPs, or in need of a refresher, this set provides an overview of accounting for contributions, endowments, split-interest agreements, fair value measurement, programmatic investments, functional classification of expenses, net asset classification, and financial statement presentation—including the latest updates to GAAP that are or soon will be effective for most NFPs. This interactive CPE-hour program contains real-world examples, case studies, animations and videos to create a flexible, dynamic learning experience.

Note: As of August 1, 2018, course content has been updated to reflect implementation of FASB Accounting Standards Updates (ASUs) effective for most not-for-profit entities for their next financial reporting period, including those related to financial statement presentation (ASU 2016-14) and revenue recognition (ASU 2014-09 and ASU 2018-08).
