Great instructor. Actually the first Ethics webinar that was not boring. I've been taking Ethics classes for 14 year. She was very engaging and did not just read powerpoints. Highly recommend this webinar.

Ethics is core in Taxation. Understanding what is right and wrong for making distinction between acceptable and not per regulations in a given scenario, accordingly tax professional needs training to make an informed judgment. This refresher webinar by the Respected Lady Presenter satisfies this learning need. Highly recommended. Thanks

I used the web browser version. There were two occasions where the screen froze. The first resulted in exiting and reentering the class and the second resolved on its own. Other than that, functionality was fine and it was a good experience.
