Vizio has just announced a partnership with CPA Network, the online community for credentialed professionals to help them get their job done.
CPA’s platform lets anyone learn and practice what it means to be a credentialed professional, as well as connect with other professionals who share the same goals.
With the launch of its CPA Professional Network app, Vizio is bringing CPA to the Vizio Smart TV 4.
Vizio’s new Smart TV offers access to the CPA network, which will provide access to professional certification training and other information, as the company says.
“Vizio is committed to helping people succeed in their careers,” said Steve Stiles, vice president of content at Vizio.
“We’re excited to offer a comprehensive suite of professional training tools, and CPA has been an invaluable resource for many professionals seeking to connect with others who share similar goals.”
We’re thrilled to partner with CPM and to make the CPM Professional Network available on our Smart TVs.
CPM provides credentialed credentialing services and training for a wide range of industries including: CPA, insurance, legal, finance, IT, and more.
“Virtually every professional has some type of credential, and we’re excited that people will be able to use the CPGO platform to learn more about these credentialing and certifications,” he continued.
“As an added benefit, the CPTN app also provides the ability to access training information from professional certification providers like CPA.com and the CFPA.
The CPM CPA Pro app also offers access on smart TVs to CPA-accredited certifications like the CAA, CPA Certification Program, and the AASC Certified Professional.
This is the latest in a series of announcements that have come from Vizio this year.
Last year, the company announced its partnership with the CBA, the largest CPA certification program in the world.
Vizios CPA Certified Professional program is available on Vizio TVs, as is the CMA, a new professional certification program for professionals who have taken the CFA exam and are working on a certificate.
Vizios new partnership with a CPA organization is particularly interesting, given the way the CTA has operated in the past.
In a letter to employees in June, CEO Jim Sperling explained that the company would partner with a group of CPA organizations to help develop and provide certification training to its customers.
The CTA is currently looking to raise $100 million in a venture-capital funding round that could lead to a more permanent CPA presence in the United States.
In addition, the new partnership is one of a handful of initiatives from Vizios recent efforts to improve the way it supports its business and employees, as it seeks to grow and diversify its portfolio of content and services.
