WiseGuides Study Tools for Accounting and Tax Professionals (1-800-514-0832)
Thank you for your interest in WiseGuides™ Continuing Education courses. Since 1995, WiseGuides has provided continuing education (CE) courses for tax professionals. All of our CE courses are registered with the IRS and with NASBA/QAS as online self-study courses. All courses are available online 24/7, so you may study whenever you want. If you purchased a WiseGuides™ CE Subscription, here is how it works.
Prepaid “bucket” of generic Continuing Education hours. If you purchased a CE Subscription, you purchased a "bucket" of prepaid generic hours. The courses that you may take are not preselected for you. You choose which courses you would like to take from our entire regular CE library. To view our entire course listing, select "CE / CPE Course List" under the above "Continuing Education" tab. Just scroll down to see all the tax courses from which you may pick. Please note that our IRS Ethics courses are listed after the end of the tax course listing. We also offer a 3-CE hour ethics course for Ohio CPAs.
Once your “bucket” of prepaid generic hours is all used, to purchase more hours, you will go to our WiseGuides™ STORE at: http://www.WiseGuides.mybigcommerce.com/continuing-professional-education/.
NOTE. Please note that there are two different WiseGuides™ websites: the WiseGuides™ BigCommerce STORE website for purchases and the WiseGuides™ EDUCATION website to access your study materials.
To select and begin your first course, just go to this URL address at the WiseGuides™ Education Website and sign-in to your account, with your User Name and Password: http://www.WiseGuides.com/indexcpe.htm.
ONLY ONE “DOWNLOAD.” Although you initially “downloaded” a registration file to complete your purchase and to establish your access to the WiseGuides™ EDUCATION site, there are no course files to download. All the course material resides on our server and you access it by signing-in 24/7 to the WiseGuides™ EDUCATION Website at: http://www.WiseGuides.com/indexcpe.htm.
NOTE. There is a “Remember me” function that you may elect so that you do not have to re-enter your User Name and Password each time you enter the WisesGuides™ EDUCATION site.
Start and stop your courses whenever you choose. You may start and stop your online study as often as you choose. The software will remember which course you were in the last time you signed-in. So, the next time you sign-in, you will be asked if you want to continue where you left off.
Print Option. There is a Print option available to print the Course Lessons, the Study Questions, and the Final Exam Questions. To Print, after you have started a course, select the “Print” tab at the very far right-hand corner of the screen (across from your “My Account” tab and the ”Courses” tab.) This enables you to study whenever and wherever you choose and not have to be online.
If you print your study material, then you may “look-up” your answers to the Study Questions and the Final Exam Questions and circle your answer on paper. However, you MUST sign back in to your WiseGuides™ EDUCATION Website account and enter your answers online to submit for grading.
Final Exam passing score is 70%. To pass the course, a score of 70% or higher is required. You have three attempts to pass the Final Exam.
CE courses registered with the I.R.S. All WiseGuides™ tax CE courses are registered with the IRS as approved Continuing Education programs for Enrolled Agents and IRS PTIN holders (both exempt and non-exempt). The I.R.S. program I.D. number is listed in the respective CE course "Details" column in the course listing.
