SFTI strives to present programs that will meet most state continuing education requirements for attorneys and CPAs, and will continue to submit all of its offerings for approval by the various states' legal and accounting boards. The Institute seeks to offer programs that will allow registrants to satisfy their obligation to receive continuing education credit including ethics. However, each state licensing organization has specific requirements for these programs. The Institute cannot guarantee that the programs it designates as addressing ethics will be credited by all continuing education certifying organizations.
