Irrespective of the CPA is employed in public accounting, governmental accounting, or private accounting practice, these standards provide a guide as to what the CPAs as ethical professionals should do.

The transition between instructors was a little awkward. All examples and in depth discussions and court cases were very good.


I absolutely loved it and it was very informative


The course was very informative.


Very detailed and specific about CPA ethics and practices, which I enjoyed thanks to myCPE!


Gave real world scenarios, showing the complexity and "greys" that can come into play when presented with decisions that involve ethics. Also didn't make everything ethical. Was very clear about drawing a line between what is a violation of ethical standards vs maybe a moral standard - and when the "risk zone" is hit that should be avoided.
