In California, two-year CPA licenses are valid for two years and expire every other year at midnight on the last day of the licensee's birth month. Licensees have the option of renewing their license in either an active or inactive condition. If a licensee chooses to renew in an inactive condition, they will be notified by the board that their license has been renewed, but they will still be able to practice accounting for two years, as long as they do not work as an accountant during this time.
The length of a CPA license depends on how long it is validly issued by the board. A license is valid for two years from the date of issuance if it is issued within one year of when the CPA was last licensed as a practitioner. Otherwise, it is valid for four years from the date of issuance.
A CPA who has been licensed for less than one year may apply for a temporary license. The board will issue a temporary license that is valid for six months from the date of issuance. The CPA can use the temporary license to comply with any professional conduct requirements until they can file an application with the board for a new license. A CPA who has been suspended cannot apply for a new license, even with a temporary license. They also cannot work while their license is suspended.
Your CPA/PA license is valid for two years and expires every other year at midnight on the last day of the month of your birth. The year of expiry is determined by your birth year. So, if you were born in January 1959, your CPA license will expire on December 31st 1987 and not 1988 as might be expected since 1958 was a leap year.
In order to renew your license, you must complete 10 continuing professional education (CPE) credits within one year from the date of expiration. These courses can be completed online through CDCEPUser.com or by attending live events sponsored by the California Board of Accountancy (CDCB). Completion of these courses will be reflected on your record with the DCPE.
The cost is $50 for members of the CDCB and $100 for non-members. This includes handling and postage to anywhere in the world.
A CPL is valid until the applicant's date of birth falls within four years or more than five years after the license is granted or renewed. If the applicant's birthday occurs between January 1 and December 31, the license will not be valid beyond that date.
A CPL is required to operate a motorcycle upon any highway in this state. Motorcycles are defined as vehicles with two wheels and an engine of less than 750 cc. Riders must be able to show proof of financial responsibility in order to obtain a CPL. This could be through insurance coverage or cash deposit.
In Michigan, there are eight classes of motorcycles depending on their value. These classes are from lowest to highest: Class A, B, C, D, E, F, and H. Only motorcycles classified as Class G or higher can be ridden without having a CPL. All riders, whether they have a CPL or not, are required by law to wear helmets when riding a motorcycle.
Motorcycle operators who have been convicted of certain offenses (such as driving under the influence or killing someone while operating a motorcycle without a helmet) may have their licenses revoked. When this happens, you cannot apply for a new license until the previous one has been reinstated.
The American Heart Association (AHA) requires certification renewal every two years in order to be in conformity with their criteria. If your CPR certification is going to expire in the next six months, it's time to consider renewal. The AHA recommends that you renew your certification every other year.
In addition, there are three ways to maintain current CPR skills: practice hands-only CPR every six months; perform full CPR protocols on humans each time you take the training course; and provide feedback after each exercise.
CPR and automated external defibrillators (AEDs) are important tools for anyone who may encounter a person in need of emergency help. Whether you're a caregiver or medical professional, being prepared to administer CPR can mean the difference between life and death for someone.
