Interested In Becoming A CPA?

I have lived next to a CPA for a long time now, and there were many times while I was growing up that our conversations would turn to the subject of money. He always had an opinion on things and always seemed so smart. My brothers and I could always count on him to give us sound financial advice when we needed it.

My older brother was so inspired by my CPA neighbor that he decided to follow in his footsteps. My brother has never been a good student so I was surprised when he actually stuck to his plan and was working towards becoming an accountant.

There’s a lot of schooling that goes into being a CPA, and there are many regulations that you have to comply with. One of them is the Continuing Professional Education, or CPE. Accountants can fulfill their CPE requirements through classroom participation, online, or through independent means. My brother went the online route.

My brother easily found some step-by-step instructions online that took him through the whole process of online CPE courses. He really was interested in making this happen, so I really think he has a good chance of doing well in his field.

There are a lot of steps to go through if you’re interesting in becoming a CPA. There are a lot of courses and classes you have to take, and then there is a serious test at the end of it. If this is something you are good at, you will be able to have a career that you really consider fun. I, however, was never one of those people who were cut out for this work.

The reason why there are so many steps to becoming a CPA is because your clients have to know they can trust you with their money. If it is lost or irresponsibly used, they will be in a lot of trouble. Succeeding as a CPA means really knowing your stuff.

I have heard horror stories where an accountant will mess up and cost the client a lot of money. Also it pays to be trustworthy so that people won’t accuse you of taking their money.

I have had my share of accounting classes in school, and I suppose I did well enough, but I was never really into it. My mind just wanders too much, sometimes. I do my own taxes, but I couldn’t be like my brother and go through the steps of becoming a CPA.
