On March 20, 2020, Gov. Tom Wolf suspended restrictions
that limited the ability of licensees to take classes online or participate in distance-learning opportunities (self-study
) for the current biennial renewal period. This permits all licensees to complete their continuing education online during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The current biennial renewal period ends Dec. 31, 2021. Effective Feb. 29, 2020, the GAO released a COVID-19 GAGAS CPE Alert
that outlines a six-month grace period for completing Yellow Book CPE and a temporary waiver for the 20-hour annual requirement.
