Ethics Matters

August 2022

Are you looking for a way to bring ethics training to your professionals? Have the practitioners in your state been leaning into the gray areas of ethical behavior? Have there been violations of your state’s accountancy laws and regulations? If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, the Ethical Leadership Training (ELT) program offered by the NASBA Center for the Public Trust (CPT) is the answer.

The ELT is the remediation of choice for 14 State Boards of Accountancy as part of their settlement agreement with professionals that have violated their state’s rules and guidelines. The ELT program is designed to help professionals identify ethical issues, resolve ethical dilemmas and create an environment that promotes the highest standard of ethical behavior in their state.

The ELT program provides tools and resources to guide ethical decision making and encourages changes in behavior for those who participate. Easy to implement, the ELT carries no cost to the state board as the participant pays all the related costs. The training experience is structured as a standard three module program, with an additional customized state-specific module available. The tracking and reporting components provide boards with accurate information on an individual’s pass rate as determined by the State Board of Accountancy or over three attempts. Upon completion, the participant receives a certificate indicating their success.

Ethical decision making in the workplace can be challenging. It requires clarity of values along with accountability, critical thinking skills, professionalism, and trust. Let the CPT help train your practitioners as they strive for ethical behavior in business.
