The Internal Revenue Service regulates the Enrolled Agent and the Enrolled Agent credential. Obtaining the credential requires that each candidate pass a three part Special Enrollment Examination (SEE) administered by Prometric. The IRS has established an SEE Blackout Period every March and April as prep time for the next exam cycle. Therefore, when taking EA Test Prep courses, give yourself enough time to master the material so you can schedule your SEE exam prior to June 30, 2019, the last exam date for the 2018 cycle.

Commencing July 1, 2019 the new exam content starts later this year due to TCJA and the government shutdown. Please note for this exam cycle the IRS has mandated 2018 tax law. Tax Cuts and Jobs Act law in effect for the 2018 tax year only will be the SEE content up through February, 29, 2020.

Each SEE exam consist of 100 questions: 85 scoreable and 15 Pre-Test questions that must be completed within 3.5 Hours exam. A pre-test question does not count toward your score or against your time. The SEE exams are on the following major topics and the IRS has approved GlobalED to offer CE credits for each test prep course that may be applied to the voluntary AFSP: Annual Filing Season Program.

  • Part 1: Individuals: 5 CE credits in Federal Tax Law

  • Part 2: Business: 5 CE credits in Federal Tax Law

EA: Enrolled Agent  Courses

The three SEE: Enrolled Agent exams are administered by Prometric, a professional  testing organization that requires another professional testing and measurement organization like GlobalED to prepare candidates to pass their licensing examinations. Here's what Prometric reveals about itself on their website, "The construction, design and development of testing programs that are relevant, psychometrically sound and legally defensible." The large exam fee puts the cost of failure quite high.

The GlobalED Online eLearning Management System uses State-of-the-Art Personalized eLearning TechnologiesSM  to Instruct, Measure and Enhance Learning the Topical Content in preparation for the three part Enrolled Agent exams. Exam content is taken directly from IRS and Federal publications and the Tax Code.

Let the Exam Prep experts guide you through your exam.


Unlike some other practice exams which are nothing more than "recycled" test questions released by the IRS, we use "Fresh Questions" that are relevant to today's exam.
