I have tried several CPE services over the years and usually am disappointed with the service offerings, especially with regard to ethics CPE. I loved this guy's casual style, knowledge, and discussion. This one CPE offered more interesting information that what I am used to with most. I have registered for 2 other classes this month and hope to experience the same. I am impressed!
