How to Become a CPA

There are very strict guidelines to follow to become a CPA in the U.S. Though each state has different individual laws and regulations, there are minimum standard requirements that every CPA must meet. First, you will need 150 semester units of a college education paired with one year of accounting-related experience. All CPAs are required to have a license. The Uniform Certified Public Accountant Examination must be passed to become certified to receive a license and permit to practice. After that, all CPAs must continue with professional development offerings and courses in order to renew their licenses every year.

What is the ZipRecruiter Compensation Estimate?

To help candidates find their perfect job at their desired pay rate, ZipRecruiter estimates the compensation range for job listings where the employer does not state a pay range.

ZipRecruiter Compensation Estimates are not verified by the employer posting the job, and the actual compensation range for an advertised position may vary, perhaps considerably, from the estimated range.
