This 4 hour course is designed to meet the Ethics and 2 hour CR&R requirement of the Colorado State Board of Accountancy (the Board). In this course, we explore ethical principles and values, noting how contextual factors and other issues may cause a person to adopt skewed or incorrect ethical positions. The course then covers ethical reasoning and its application to common accounting dilemmas. This course also discusses the Colorado Statutes and Rules that pertain to CPAs licensed to practice in the State of Colorado. Students will become familiar with the Colorado Revised Statutes, the Rules of the State Board of Accountancy, and the Policies adopted by the Board currently in effect and how the statutes, rules, and policies pertain to them.
