New York (Oct. 13, 2003) -- The American Institute of CPAs will showcase its technological know-how this week with the first of four live Webcasts about the new computer-based Uniform CPA Exam.

Presented by the AICPA, the National Association of State Boards of Accountancy, and Prometric, a Thomson business, the free Webcasts are geared to CPA candidates, students, educators, and CPA employers about the computerized exam, which launches in April 2004.

“The computerized exam is an historic change for the accounting profession that will better assess the skills that new CPAs need to carry out their essential charge: the protection of the public interest,” said Arleen Thomas, AICPA Vice President – Professional Standards & Services. “With the new exam only six months away, we’re committed to helping everyone understand the changes and enhancements.”

The first Webcast, “Educators: How to Prepare for the Computerized CPA Exam,” is scheduled for Oct. 15. Participants can register at
