Are you an Accounting Firm looking to educate and train your employees about Blockchain and Digital Assets and how they are disrupting the industry?
MMBA’s CPE courses focus on the impact that blockchain technology will have on the accounting profession. MMBA has partnered with the Accounting Blockchain Coalition (ABC), Wiley and Foundational Technologies Institute (FTI) to provide innovative courses along with the first Accounting industry-backed certification for Blockchain. As adoption of this technology increases, our courses and our certification for blockchain will prepare accountants for a revolutionary change in the way transactions are recorded on business’ books and records, including triple-entry accounting.
This is a pivotal time in the Accounting industry, as Blockchain and Digital Assets are dramatically changing the way CPA Firms speak to clients. Not only are Accountants and CPAs having to deal with servicing clients in the Crypto space but even more importantly Blockchain is revolutionizing how the Accounting profession itself operates. This Technology is moving faster than Industry.
Remember: “Blockchain is an Accounting System and We are Accountants”™. Blockchain reduces the costs of maintaining and reconciling ledgers, as well as providing absolute certainty over the ownership and history of assets. It is crucial that CPA Firms are knowledgeable about this technology and that they are able to talk intelligently to their clients about it. A joint Accounting Gap Analysis Report published by the AICPA and NASBA in 2021 stated: “The role of today’s CPA has evolved. Newly licensed CPAs need deeper skill sets, more competencies and greater knowledge of emerging technologies.” This is why we firmly believe that all accountants, from staff accountants to Supervisors to Managers to Partners should take our courses.

What is the difference between our CPE and non-CPE courses?
CPE (Continuing Professional Education) credits refer to the requirements for working professionals in certain industries which are needed in order to remain licensed. These requirements ensure that professionals like teachers, lawyers, therapists, and engineers (to name a few) have the necessary skills required to perform their jobs properly. Accountants have annual CPE requirements which vary state by state.
Our CPE courses have been approved for CPE by CPEThink (https://www.cpethink.com/), a NASBA QAS Self-Study Sponsor since 2004. Upon successful completion of each MMBA CPE course, CPEThink will provide 2.5 CPE credits. Because the CPE courses must meet certain criteria from NASBA, there are slight differences between our CPE courses and our non-CPE courses.
We suggest that if you are an Accountant or CPA that requires CPE, you purchase our CPE courses. On the other hand, if you are a University undergraduate or graduate student who does not need CPE, we suggest you purchase our non-CPE courses.
I’m a Business School student (Undergraduate/Graduate) or an Accountant (EntryLevel/Staff/Partner) or a Certified Public Accountant (CPA). Why should I take your courses and get the CBAP ™ certification?
The Accounting and Finance industries are both at a critical inflection point in their histories. People that work in these industries need to learn about what Web3, blockchain, cryptocurrency and digital assets are. Technology is indeed moving faster than both the Accounting and Finance industries. And while the space is moving fast, there are very few skilled professionals with sufficient knowledge in these areas. Higher Education institutions and Industry Associations have had difficulties in providing their students and members with the right education and training that Corporations and Financial Institutions need from their workforce.
As an example, our own accounting firm (Masotti & Masotti) encountered this very same issue. In 2016, when we started our Digital Asset Group, we quickly saw tremendous demand from clients in the Blockchain and Cryptocurrency space reach out to us to provide them with Accounting, Taxation and Auditing services. However, due to a lack of Accountants who are familiar with these emerging technologies, we had significant constraints hiring people with the right skillsets.
We created our engaging self-study courses as well as the Certified Blockchain Accounting Professional ™ (CBAP) to help bridge this education gap in the Accounting and Finance professions. Our engaging courses will teach you about blockchain, Web3 and digital assets and their impact in Accounting and Finance. The CBAP ™ certification will demonstrate to potential employers, clients and partners your depth of understanding in this particular area.
What are included in your courses?
Our innovative courses contain the following:
- engaging content written by our Subject Matter Experts
- Infographics and Tables & Charts
- Videos that help explain very technical or difficult to understand topics
- Hands-on-Labs (created in partnership with CoinTracking) which help validate that the learner can apply their knowledge in a simulated environment.
- Blockchain Explorer Exercises
- Learning Assessments and for our CPE courses we also include various Review Checkpoints throughout each course.
What are Digital Credentials (Badges and Certificates) and why are they important?
MMBA is committed to providing our learners with the tools necessary to achieve their professional goals. We understand that communicating your credentials in an ever-expanding online marketplace can be challenging. That is why we have partnered with Credly to provide you with a digital version of your credentials. Digital badges can be used in email signatures or digital resumes, and on social media sites such as LinkedIn, Facebook, and Twitter. This digital image contains verified metadata that describes your qualifications and the process required to earn them.

What is the Certified Blockchain Accounting Professional (CBAP) designation and whyshould I consider getting it?
The Certified Blockchain Accounting Professional (CBAP) was created by MMBA in partnership with and backed by global companies in the Industry (ABC, Accounting Blockchain Coalition), Education (Wiley), and Certification (FTI, Foundational Technologies Institute). It is the accounting industry’s first certification for blockchain and digital assets. We created our engaging self-study courses as well as the Certified Blockchain Accounting Professional ™ (CBAP) to help bridge the education gap in the Accounting and Finance industries.
If you are a Higher Education student majoring in any business-related field or a working professional in the fields of Accounting or Finance, we recommend you obtain the CBAP Certification in order to show potential employers your depth of understanding of this particular subject area. If you are a Managing Partner running a CPA Firm, a CPA, a Staff Accountant, or a Bookkeeper, our courses alongside the CBAP Certification will allow you to:
- Educate staff and clients who may be uninformed about blockchain and digital assets
- Create a new revenue stream by being able to offer accounting services to clients in this space
- Stand out and distinguish yourself or your company to potential clients and partners
- Properly provide guidance and consultation services to clients on cryptocurrency transactions
