Can the Board review my experience to see if I meet the year requirement?

Kristen -

The Accountancy Board will not review your experience until an application is submitted; it cannot be reviewed prior. The CPA who signs off on your experience will be verifying that you have in fact completed the work you listed on your experience form. If an applicant has a concern to whether their work would be considered they need to check with the CPA since a CPA has to sign off on the form.

Please see the experience requirements listed below:

  1. Complete one year of experience in accounting acceptable to the Board. The experience required to be demonstrated for issuance of an initial certificate pursuant to T.C.A. §62-1-106(j) shall meet the following requirements:

i. Experience may consist of providing any type of services or advice using accounting, attest, management advisory, financial advisory, tax or consulting skills
ii. Acceptable experience shall include employment in industry, government, academia or public practice
iii. No fewer than 2000 hours of experience (earned in no less than one year or more than three years). Experience must be earned within the ten (10) years immediately preceding the application for certification

The Work Experience Form may be used as a guide in determining if you met requirements as well. I know you mentioned seeing the form, but I have added a link below for convenience as well:

NASBA will review transcripts and classes. The CPA that signs the experience form is confirming they have knowledge of the work listed.
