Continuing Professional Education – For CPAs (and Others!)
In addition to the introductory videos above, Cheqbook provides formal training for CPAs called CPE. Even if you’re not a CPA this is excellent in depth training and you’re welcome to enroll. Cheqbook LLC is an approved sponsor of CPE by the State of Hawaii (registration number 15001). This training is currently free but if you’re a CPA please note that we may not be approved for credit in your state. Some state Boards of Accountancy do not require local or NASBA certification and others accept sponsors registered in other states like ourselves. Please check your state’s standards. The nationally recognized CPE provider FunCPE.com maintains a handy list of which states accept their CPE and why: FunCPE.com. Cheqbook CPE qualifies in those same states except IL, NY, PA and TX which require specific sponsor registration FunCPE applied for but we have not.
ALL CPE COURSES ARE HOSTED AT Cheqbook.DigitalChalk.com. Cheqbook has partnered with premier online training company DigitalChalk.com to provide Continuing Professional Education (CPE) for CPAs as well as our own Certified Cheqbook Professional (CCP) designation.

Program/Course Development Policy – In program/course development, Cheqbook ensures the following:
- Program content and knowledge level are appropriate for the intended participants. All courses Cheqbook offers are tailored for the specific learning needs of participants and will vary based on anticipated levels of student experience. The course descriptions describe the content of the course as well as provide guidance on any pre-existing skill set or training that may be required for students to assess and successfully complete the courses offered.
- Content and delivery system(s) are current, effectively designed and accurate. Content is kept current using a combination of methods including student evaluations and periodic review by our content review team. Their effectiveness is tested prior to public submission with a team of test students, and the delivery method is state of the art and kept current by our providing partner DigitalChalk.com.
- Content is developed by a subject matter expert and reviewed by qualified persons outside of the development team. Cheqbook uses our own in-house experts who are members of the development team for courses on using the application itself, and also engages highly qualified third party instructors for courses that are not product specific but are relevant and useful to our user base and other CPAs. These courses are reviewed by an internal team composed of CPAs, developers, industry specialists, or other third party contractors as may be necessary to properly assess and critique proposed courses. These review teams will include fellow instructors.
- Content is based on relevant learning objectives and outcomes. Cheqbook chooses course subject matter, selects instructors, assists those instructors with course development, and reviews their submitted videos, quiz and test materials with the student’s needs in mind. This includes a consideration of the value of the learned material – especially its current relevance – as well as the effectiveness of the course materials for reaching the key objective of student understanding.
