Do you have plans to continue your education? Do you see yourself pursuing public accounting and other designations beyond CPA?
This line of questioning touches on more than just your current level of accounting education or training and the interviewer is evaluating your commitment to ongoing or future job training as well. Your response to these types of questions should include examples of how your current training has prepared you for the work you currently do. But the interviewer may also want to discuss what kind of training you'd be open to in the future. Where you're headed is as important as where you are so be prepared to talk through your continuing education plans and ongoing pursuits for things like certifications or courses.
