Ohio Standards for School Business Managers and Treasurers
For those school business officials who are new to the profession, we offer a formal mentoring program. Click here to learn more.
OASBO offers the following education credit types:
Contact Hours towards CEUs
1 CEU = 10 contact hours
Treasurer/CFOs must complete 18 CEUs (180 contact hours) every five years in order to renew their license.
After completion of an OASBO seminar/workshop, each participant will be issued Contact Hours for the number of hours of instruction received. You can print a transcript of your contact hours earned by logging into your account, clicking the "My OASBO" tab, and clicking the "Generate Transcript" button located in the grey "Welcome Back!" box on the right. You can even designate a date range; printing only credits earned during a specific timeframe.
Per Ohio law, as "public funds managers," public school district treasurer/CFOs must annually complete 6 hours of continuing education in the investment and management of public finances. Established and managed by the Ohio Treasury’s Center for Public Investment Management (CPIM), official CPIM credit can only be earned at such courses that have been pre-approved to qualify for such credit. Some of OASBO's professional development offerings and chapter meetings provide official CPIM training. Any approved offering is noted on the agenda.
If you are a chapter officer seeking CPIM credit for a chapter meeting, all paperwork must go through OASBO. Please contact OASBO’s Events Manager, Nadeen Askew at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
For more information on CPIM credit, including the official process for reporting your hours, please click here.
Through a partnership with Ashland University, OASBO offers college credit for some of our courses. A statement will be posted on the event detail page of those courses offering Ashland credit. Registration forms will be available at the event.
1 CPE = 1 contact hour
Certified Public Accountants (CPAs) must adhere to the continuing education requirements set forth by the State Board of Accountancy. All OASBO seminars have been approved by the Ohio State Accountancy Board for CPE credit.
The Accountancy Board of Ohio will accept OASBO members’ transcript as printed from their account/profile as it shows the date, course name/subject area, and number of hours received.
