Accountants gain in-demand knowledge and skills to advance careers in fast-evolving markets with sector-specific CPE offering

CHICAGO, IL / ACCESSWIRE / July 16, 2022 / Becker, an education partner to the world’s top accountants and firms, today introduced its Industry Libraries, a CPE (continuing professional education) program designed to help enterprises and accounting and finance professionals deepen their expertise in complex and rapidly changing markets. The first-to-launch Libraries are real estate, health care, and banking with others to be added later this year, including pharmaceuticals.

“Accountants play an important role in every industry. Yet, they’re experiencing rising demand for more niche expertise, especially in industries that are increasingly complex and constantly changing, such as real estate, health care and banking,” said Jennifer Lowe, Becker’s Senior Director of CPE Solutions. “You need to get caught up on the issues that matter most in a new vertical market. With our Industry Libraries, Becker can guide you-helping you get up to speed on the topics that matter most in a new vertical market, while giving you greater flexibility and ownership of your career and learning journey.”

Once enrolled in an Industry Library, you will first study key industry-wide areas and then dive deep into more advanced industry-specific issues and topics-taught by highly regarded instructors with decades of real-world experience in their fields. The Real Estate Library (10 courses for 18.5 CPE credits) covers topics ranging from identifying risks in a developer’s financial statements to understanding special tax issues related to contractors and international construction, and more. The Health Care Library (11 courses for 15 CPE credits) delves into reimbursement systems, cost allocation methodologies and accounting for contingencies, allowances and settlements, among other industry challenges and trends. The Banking Library (10 courses for 12.5 credits) covers the complexities of revenue recognition, trends in ESG reporting, navigating digital assets and cryptocurrency, and understanding the guiding regulatory policies.

“We see an opportunity to change the conversation around CPE,” added Patrice Johnson, Becker’s Director of Curriculum. “CPE is most often regarded as a ‘check the box’ requirement; it offers so much more value when approached through the lens of life-long learning and career advancement. The traditional catalog of courses organized by topic still has its place, but our goal with Becker Industry Libraries is to streamline the path to increased potential with the most relevant, up-to-date content for the industry you’re in.”

Currently, Becker is the only CPE provider with an industry-centric product offering, including content built with a consistent framework for a series of high-growth industries that are rapidly changing and involve complex systems and accounting issues. All courses within the Industry Libraries are available in a self-paced, on-demand format and are viewable 24/7.
