Educator Resources

TSCPA is dedicated to supporting educators in Tennessee who are in a key position to inspire and develop the CPAs of tomorrow! We have a number of resources designed to help educate and promote the accounting profession and the benefits of a CPA designation. 

Discover Accounting

vDAP2020BOX

 Do you have students trying to decide on their future career? Want something give them something more hands-on?

TSCPA’s virtual Discover Accounting Program is designed to introduce students to the CPA profession, either in a live or virtual classroom setting. Participating students will explore opportunities offered by the profession and will become familiar with the educational and licensure requirements for CPAs. Students will have the opportunity to hear from and interact with Tennessee CPAs working in various positions and industries across the state. This model allows your students to attend the program from home or school, and offers you the option to schedule a CPA to speak to the class through either an in-person or virtual visit. The program can be used in the classroom by educators or viewed by students on their own.
