    I appreciate you providing this CPE, however, I have a very minimal amount of time to meet with clients, working around my son’s schedule.

    This probably takes Thursday away from me, after I get my off site work done in the morning, as I cannot get back by noon, and I pick up my son at 2pm.

    How is this okay, with the amount of testing we already have? I have been using QB since 1998, and Certified since 2004. I am surely not as good as you, however, my clients have been very happy.

    It is not that I do not appreciate what you are doing, and I would love to login on my own time. Of course, I see there is no CPE for doing it that way.

    I do not understand where this requirement is coming from. I have an email from David Virag | Accountants & Advisors Group – National Account Specialist, saying that I was all set until March of 2017, when I would take an ACE course.

    Can you please enlighten me?

    Thank you for your time

      The ACE CPE requirements are to maintain your Advanced Certification per Intuit (not QB Power Hour). You only need 9 hours over a 3 year period and there are other options (i.e. not just QB Power Hour) to obtain the ACE credits needed. Feel free to provide Intuit with your comments / feedback. We (QB Power Hour) are just trying to help people meet the requirement (for free).
