Continuing Education

Educational sessions at The TMA Annual provide an overview of topics relevant to the practice of corporate renewal and corporate and financial deal-making. There is no prerequisite or advance study necessary to attend the conference or to qualify for continuing education credit. The conference is a “group-live” educational offering. CTP, CPE, and CLE credit is available (up to 3.8 credits based on a 60-minute hour or 4.6 credits based on a 50-minute hour). 
 
CPE
Accountants may earn a maximum of 4.6 hours of CPE (based on a 50-minute hour) for conference attendance. The Turnaround Management Association is registered with the National Association of State Boards of Accountancy (NASBA) as a sponsor of continuing professional education on the National Registry of CPE Sponsors. State boards of accountancy have final authority on the acceptance of individual courses for CPE credit. Complaints regarding registered sponsors may be submitted to the National Registry of CPE Sponsors through its website: www.learningmarket.org
 
CTP/CTA
CTPs and CTAs may earn a maximum of 4.6 hours of credit (based on a 50-minute hour) for conference attendance. TMA will automatically update CTP/CTA records to reflect attendance at the conference.
 
CLE
Attorneys may earn a maximum of 3.8 hours of credit (based on a 60-minute hour) or 4.6 hours of credit (based on a 50-minute hour) for conference participation. The final calculation of available CLE hours is subject to the individual state bars’ determination of credits. Applications to individual state bars are pending based upon request.
