How many years of training does it take to become a CPA?

AICPA

Depending on the state you wish to earn your CPA the rules and regulations vary. I would encourage you to contact your state CPA society which can be found through the AICPA website here:

Generally speaking a CPA license requires 150 semester credit hours of education including a Baccalaureate degree and a required number of semester hours in accounting. In addition to the education requirement and passing the CPA exam there is also an experience requirement that must be met and also varies from state to state.
