Course Description

The term current assets will represent all the assets of the firm that are expected to be easily sold, utilized, consumed, or exhausted through the company’s or standard business operations which can lead to their conversion into cash value within a single year.

The sub-division of financial statements and the valuation of assets are two of the most important elements in the development of modern financial statements. The purpose of this CPE course is to explore methods for the recognition, grouping, and valuation of assets on the balance sheet.

This CPE webinar focuses on how companies manage and account for the primary current assets such as accounts receivable, inventory, and some investments.

This continuing education course also provides a broad discussion of the general ways in which assets are depicted on the financial statements.  The financial statements and the footnotes of the companies featured in this CPE course include Caterpillar Financial, Caterpillar Manufacturing, John Deere, Nordstrom, Yahoo, Barnes & Noble, and Amazon.

The instructor presented 650 pages of material on a 2.5 hour CPE. Ridiculous! I would not recommend.
