(relating to Required CPE Participation) and §523.130 of this
chapter (relating to Ethics Course Requirements).

(2) title or description of content, or both;
(3) date(s) of completion;
(4) location; and
(5) number of CPE credits.

CPE credits completed during the accrual period will be subject to
suspension and his certificate may be revoked for failing to report
the minimum required CPE credits for three consecutive years.
