KPMG Learning

During the development of each KPMG Learning CPE course, our training specialists regularly consult with KPMG’s thought leaders and key stakeholders on a broad array of crucial accounting and finance topics across many industries to help ensure the content accuracy and currency of CPE course offerings. Many of these thought leaders have worked directly with standards setters and regulators (e.g., FAB, GASB, SEC, IASB, AICPA, and PCAOB) as they develop new standards, rules, and regulations for the accounting profession.


KPMG Learning CPE offerings are available through classroom settings, online sessions, and web-based self studies. Each CPE Credit course is designed to help you and key members of your organization address skill gaps in specific topics and remain current with continuing professional education (CPE) requirements.
