Registration of your certificate online can include the following waivers:

In addition to the two types of waivers, the online renewal form will not require CPE if instead of an active status you request an Inactive Status or a Retired Status.

 Continuing Professional Education (CPE) Waiver for Good Cause
Pursuant to A.R.S. § 32-730(C), the Board may grant a full or partial exemption from CPE requirements or an extension of time to complete the CPE requirements on demonstration of good cause. Good cause includes:
  • a disability
  • an illness
  • a physical or mental condition
  • military service
  • financial hardship
  • a natural disaster
  • or any condition or circumstance that the Board deems relevant
 Registration Fee Waiver for Good Cause due to Disability
Pursuant to A.R.S. § 32-730(B), the registration fee for a CPA may be reduced or waived by the board for registrants who have become disabled to a degree precluding the continuance of their practice for six months or more prior to the due date of any renewal fee.

As part of your online application, you may request a waiver to your registration fee by certifying and documenting through a current signed and dated statement from your licensed health care provider that attests to your disability and that you’ve become disabled to a degree that has precluded you from practicing accounting for six months or more prior to the date of your renewal.
