CPAcademy thanks again for another great class.


It was refreshing to take a technical class that helps with debits and credits-complex topics often leave the actual work to conjecture! Thank you for making this topic easy to put into practice. Thank you very much for illustrating different scenarios with detailed journal entries. Your time sharing is much appreciated.


I take a lot of on-line webinars for CPE and I have to say these presenter were fantastic! Very clear and orderly. I learned a lot. Very informative and presenters bring an engaging energy to help keep participants engaged. They also give ample time for the poll questions!


Honestly - this webinar was one of my favorites. I like how it took a high level approach to the new lease standards but then actually applied them with lease incentives. I feel like I learned a lot.


The material was not really relevant to my practice, but I found the presentation excceptionally well done. The explanations were very clear and straightforward, the slides very illustrative of the situations being address, and the speakers quite knowledgeable and precise in their presentation. Has I need for the service they provide, I would unquestionably contact them


Thank you for presenting a complex topic is such an easy manner. The speakers were enthusiastic about their knowledge and wanting to share. I will definitely review the recording to drill into some of the important aspects
