Technical issues. I watched 1 hour and paused. Next day, I had to start from 0 again. I watched for 3 hours but the server was disconnected. Next day, I started at 1 hour point. Total I spent 5 hours to complete this course.

Many typos (e.g. With which of the following rules a conflict of interest creates adverse interest and self-interest threats to the member’s compliance?). The instructor seemed to be reading the slides mostly and got confused several times about whether the slide was duplicative.
