When talking about the hurdles to obtaining your CPA license, most people know about the three "E's" for licensure - Education, Examination, and Experience. However, since Sarbanes-Oxley in 2002, a fourth "E" has had increasing importance to not only continuing education, but also initial licensure. That fourth "E" is Ethics.
